Coming Home (Through The Narthex)

I’m surprised

to be looking at St Willibrord

Is he surprised

to be looking at me

I never would have guessed

that in 2021 I’d be looking back at him

And I’ll bet he never thought in 739

He’d be looking forward at me

Our prayers answered

Well, now

1282 years later

Here we are

One

Holy

Catholic and

Apostolic

Dutch buddies

Smiling at each other

in the candle light

Now here

forever

and then some more

St. Willibrord
Archbishop of Utrecht, Enlightener of the Netherlands, and Apostle to the Frisians
