Inner Ear

Catsby James Lehan Paulin

Listen to the whisper of the soul

Close the door to other senses

First hear the message as a whole

For clarity drop all defenses


Hear the voice held deep within

Ignored so long it may be meek

Focus as to detect a dropped pin

Try hard if it’s the truth you seek


Respond freely with open heart

Sight and smell will be newfound

Touch and taste as a fresh start

How powerful is the quietest sound

We are a community of laymen and laywomen who, with vowed Passionists, seek to share in the charism of St. Paul of the Cross through prayer, ongoing spiritual formation, and proclamation of the message of Christ Crucified.
