A smart rhyme


Pope Frances said: “The Holy Spirit changes our hearts”. It was solely the Spirit who recently taught me the following rhyme as I was serving Jesus in the sick at Mater Dei Hospital: When I am sad let me pray the prayer of my Heavenly Dad!

How powerful is the Holy Spirit’s teaching! Yes, indeed! When I am sad why don’t I pray, slowly slowly, and word by word, the Our Father? And then, as a trusting child of my heavenly Father, let me reap the abundant joy which is hidden in this smart rhyme!
