We are so blind
To all the realm of real, so numb to feeling
Anything but the ache inside the breast,
It takes a miracle to make the healing
Miracle of beauty manifest.

One Response to Making Beauty Manifest: Alfred Barrett, S J

  1. This is beautiful. The poem about Thérèse that you link to is particularly interesting, and the photo (http://images.google.com/hosted/life/1914a53d3f40dedf.html) of the poet with his disciples sprawling on the lawn around him in 1953, against the backdrop of ivy-clad walls in summer, is lovely too.
