All things considered

translation canon Tony Dickinson

Tell them

what the wind tells the rocks

what the sea tells the cliffs

Tell them

that an immense goodness

makes us breathe more easily

Tell them

that God is not what we believe about God

nor what we say about God … very often.

God is like a wheaten loaf

God is a wine which we drink altogether

God is a shared banquet

each one gives and each receives

and, as a result of that, everything is changed

Tell them

God’s voice alone can teach me my name and

God’s Word alone reveal God’s name to us

Word of honour… secret happiness…

Oh yes! Tell them that!

But tell them too

That God is not only this

only what you can say about God

Tell them

that all things considered

even today you still do not know

ALL about him.

Patient at the Borromeo University Hospital, Montreal (Canada).
