Mesi, Father.

for bringing us hope.
for seeing a light within us.
for loving us unconditionally.

Mesi, Father.

for giving yourself to us.
for helping to pave our way.
for seeing us as an individual.

Mesi, Father.

for carrying us when we can no longer walk.
for lifting us when we fall.



  1. Paige-
    What beautiful and appropriate words that described Father Marc! You truly captured the essence of all that he believes in and hopes for for his dear children of Espwa.

  2. I love this poem, Paige. I hope Father Marc realizes how much he means to everyone. I, myself, look at him with wonder and thanks. How does one man feel so much for so many? I love that you felt compelled to say thank you in such a lovely and touching way. I hope Father Marc reads your blog and understands how much we all love him and his selfless acts of love...Thank you, Father Marc.

  3. Glad you enjoyed it. It's very, very true.
