From Mind to Word

A hearty Mille Grazie to those faithful HancAquam readers who have recently heeded my call for help in returning to poetry

As I move into full-time parish ministry, my preaching will need to be more than just philosophically astute and theologically accurate. . .it will need to be Beautiful as well!

Let the Lord shine out through both our words and deeds, and may I serve His Word with diligence and strength!

God bless, Fr. Philip

    I used to read Gerard Manley Hopkins or Anglo Saxon Christian poetry like the Dream of the Rood, to get my homiletical pump primed. For solemnities, TS Eliot.

  2. I've tried to use Eliot before. . .no luck. I've found Rilke and Dickinson to be goldmines though.
