Make me a priest, Thomas Merton prayed…

Called out at nineteen, deaf, dumb and blind

I stumbled through the doorway of the call

out of my father’s house, out of the house

of my mother, and into the openness

of the call of God.

Yes, I said, by my action.

Yes, I will, I do, I go

straight ahead into the void

trusting, listening with my heart

to guide me into the life that is forever.
