Around 4.30am I was sipping my coffee and browsing the First Things website. I landed on a poetry post written by Gabriel Torretta. Turns out that Mr. Torretta is actually Br. Gabriel, OP! I was delighted to find another Dominican friar who's interested in modern poetry. So, I left him a comment in the hope that he might get in contact with me.
This morning I went into the priory chapel to celebrate Mass. The Usual Suspects are there. . .and one stranger in an OP habit. After Mass, we introduce ourselves. . .he's Br. Gabriel! How weird is that? We immediately retired to the refectory and commenced a longish discussion of poetry.
I said to another friar in the house after telling him this story, "See. Jesus loves poetry too."
