What it Means to Be Good as a Catholic

Helping a beggar down the street

Without posting it on facebook or making

A tale out of it for popularity.

To tell the truth because it is sincere.

To call a friend who means more to you

Than just a casual friendship.

To do charity; that upon you is another’s toil

That grants a shoulder to the one

Whose clavicles are vulnerable, whose chests are bare.

To be there like how Jesus was to the marginalized

Or how Mother Theresa was there for the homeless.

To be the granter of beginnings but not ends;

The selflessness that tillers what you see as

Peduncles filled with miniature grains,

To another, a silent harvest.
