This anthology is a true labour of love.
Fuelled by faith and hope, this work has taken over a year, with long days and late nights. In attending to such spiritually rewarding work, one could fall back on these words by St. Elizabeth Ann Seton: “The first end I propose in our daily work is to do the will of God; secondly, to do it in the manner he wills it; and thirdly, to do it because it is his will.”
There is also the wisdom of St. John Bosco: “Daily work, regularly and conscientiously performed, was a sure stepping stone to sanctity.”
We have so much to be grateful for, and our hearts fill with joy for being blessed to receive these important writings on the Christian faith.
To build an open and inclusive literary space, our 100 contributors reflect a remarkable diversity. They drop in from different parts of the world. They include emerging and established voices.
We are deeply humbled and honoured to create this home for these beautiful poems, all of which remain meaningful and necessary.
