If you haven't already read the Pope's letter on the subject...

Friends, many of you have asked for my thoughts on the McCarrick abuse crisis, the Pennsylvania grand jury report, and the recent report from Archbishop Viganò. We're all devastated by the horrific suffering of these many victims, and we're all wondering what to do next.

I shared some thoughts a couple weeks ago, in an article, but I thought it might be helpful to have a more candid conversation today, building on the USCCB's statement just released (https://bit.ly/2od0uW5), which I wholly support.

Please watch the discussion below, and together let's pray for the victims and the entire Body of Christ.

Insomniac's Prayer by Vassar Miller

I lie with my body knotted into a fist
clenching against itself,
arms doubled against my ribs
knees crooking into a gnarly,
legs, side by side, martialed.

My sleep is a war against waking up,
my waking up is a slow raveling again into dark when dreams jump out of my skull
like pictures in a child's pop-up book
onto paper if my luck can catch them
before they dribble away into dingy Dawn's.

Oh, who will unsnarl my body
into gestures of love?
Who will give my heart room
to fly free in its rickety cage?
Whose subtlety whisper apart my legs,
thrusting back like a snake's tongue?
Who will nudge the dreams back into my head,
back into my bones, where rhyming with one another like wind chimes,
they will make music whenever I move?

One Flew Over

04/19/2017

Breakfast (Love is Patient)

cosmic sadness
has subsided
(for today)
no thanks to my sister spike

spinning round
my dizzy head
my love is here where I live
singing aloud
into my ringing ears
pirouetting
before my dazed eyes
screaming
at my quickening

and the color
the silver
my blue-and-purpled
green-grown
love
is here where I live

after the dizziness
steady on
level head and I
walk in the orange and pink puddles
and whisper to my butterfly brothers
"It's here where we live"

I grin at us
playing to, on, and in the words
and with the black-brown-grey-muddied
hate language
the kind that
our blue-and-purpled
green-grown
love
eats for breakfast

(Originally published in the chap book "Flock Feed Fly" by yours truly and dedicated to Alice Walker, Spike Lee, Tracy
Thorn and Ben Watt --- rededicated now to YOU!)

If you or somebody you know is suffering from mental illness: DO NOT SUFFER IN SILENCE.

“Most of the nearly 5 million affected students—nearly 80%—won’t receive counseling. Or therapy. Or medication. They won’t get any treatment at all.” (via NPR)

How can we create a safe environment where mental health issues aren’t stigmatized?
