Mother Theresa, “I Listen”

A story is told
Of an interview
With Mother Theresa
A way of her view

What are the words
That you use to pray?
She said, “I listen”
Is what “I say”

Another question posed
Then what does God say
She replied “He listens”
And we go on that way

We pray with longing
Desire that we share
He responds with love
The Word is what we hear

A silent transformation
Of being we await
A binding intimate
Of way to contemplate

To Listen Without A Lens

Grant me the grace Oh Lord
Your wisdom to us send
Encounter with a soul
To listen without a lens

Be no paradigm
No judgment to construe
Bless me an open ear
No objective to pursue

Echoing their feelings
Compassion to convey
Granting them the gift
Of what they need to say

A space of comforting
Freedom to reveal
Voice within the deep
What they truly feel

Accepting of what is
Bring it unto to You
Giving You a chance
To cast it in Your view
