Beautiful Words: Praying with the Poets

In this “Space for God: Beauty” devotional, Rick Mastroianni (Coracle Spiritual Director) guides us through three poems as prompts for prayer and connection with God.  We move from the soaring acclimation of creation and God’s law together in Psalm 19, to Gerard Manley Hopkins’ stirring proclamation of creation’s resilience against human brokenness in “God’s Grandeur,” to a more focused, but no less enthusiastic, sonnet in praise of St. Peter’s relatability by Malcolm Guite. We pray these terrific works of poetry will bless you and draw you nearer to the loving heart of God around and in us!
