On Father’s Anniversary —1959

The Sacred Heart of Jesus,
Searching the wide world through
For the faithful steward giving
His wheat in season due;

The Heart of Mary pierced with grief,
To see from behind the blue
The crucifiers of Her Son
Prepared to do it anew;

The zealous Heart of Joseph,
Watchful and ever true,
Guarding the Universal Church,
And the Holy Faith he knew;
Have found one consolation.
Dear Father – it is you.
