Cross-shaped Spaces


We are people infused

with the Christ light

that streams through

the cross-shaped space

between time and eternity.


We are members of Christ’s body

here on earth,

reaching out in love.

up to God,

out to friend and to stranger,

down to care for our planet.

Living cross-shaped spaces

of light, hope and love,

apertures for God in our dark world.
