Poem for Fr. Basilio Alava, OSA

Let infinity rule
in wisdom and in grace.
Let eternity resound
until the last penny
is spent on God's kingdom.
The house of God must be rebuilt,
it's been left in ruins for so long.
For that they need a friend:
a friend who can share with them
life's suprising twists and turns;
a friend who can demonstrate to them
the Creator's loving providence and care;
a friend who can tenderly yet firmly
lead them to the City of God.
God's people need you.
Please stay.
