A Little Light Poetry...Drawn and Quartered

There is a God-shaped vacuum in the human heart
which only God; made known through Jesus Christ, can fill.
Blaise Pascal (1623-1662)

J.M.J. + O.B.T. + M.G.R.*

Drawn and Quartered
by Mike Rizzio


Four chambers...but one purpose,
Four Gospels live to tell,
A Sacred Heart...so wounded,
A lance launched straight from hell.

Our brokenness...bloodletting,
True Mystics judged insane,
King Science...throne ascending,
To deaden all our pain.

Four riders... on four horses,
Steeds rearing for a treat,
Our corpse...nears rigor mortis,
For Art not Logic meet.

But wait...a ray of His Glorious Sonshine...

One part...scholastic logic,
One part...mystical sight,
One part...scientific wonder,
One part...artistic light.

...and if ever two lungs breathed forth,
East-West...air that is sweet,
Aloft they'll send His Body,
Heartbeat...Heartbeat...Heartbeat.


Sincerely yours in Jesus and Mary I am,
Mike Rizzio, SOLT


Imitate Mary
Become like Jesus
Live for the Triune God

Seek the Light of Our Lord Jesus Christ
See you on the High Ground!


* - J.M.J. + O.B.T. + M.G.R. stands for: Jesus, Mary and Joseph;
O Beata Trinitas; Saint Michael, Saint Gabriel and Saint Raphael
