276: Ask Anything

“Ask Anything”
Thomas Aquinas

“Ask anything.”

My Lord said to me.

And my mind and heart thought deeply
for a second,

then replied with just one word,


God’s arms then opened up and I entered Myself.
I entered myself when I entered

And having learned compassion I
allowed my soul

to stay.

Why do you let your soul stay?
