DESCRIPTION OF TRUE DEVOTION / by Joseph Castorino

 

Sinners,

like ostentatious peacocks,

run wild

and never get off the ground.

 

Lukewarm worldlings,

like hunted hens,

fly awkwardly,

if chased by a hungry hound.

 

Carpe diem:

they just want to have fun,

wantonly

playing around.

 

But devout souls,

like effortless eagles,

soar aloft into the

beautiful blue sky.

 

Their genuine love is

frequent and prompt,

and their faith

is the reason why.

 

With their lives focused

on cheerful charity,

speeding towards

Heaven they fly.
