Endowed with the Wisdom of the Spirit
From the Navarre Bible notes, we know that
What Jesus taught the disciples has been
“Echoed in the words of many martyrs”
Like Saint Ignatius and Saint Polycarp.
From Saint Thomas More’s daughter, Margaret,
We know that he consoled his good daughter.
He knew that God would not let him be lost.
With good hope he was committed to God.
In good faith he trusted God Almighty.
He did not want his daughter to worry
About what would happen to him on earth.
Whatever happened was the will of God.
“What so ever that be, seme it never
so bad in sight, it shall dede be the best.”
Patrick McCaskey is a Vice President and Director of the Chicago Bears, Chair of Sports Faith International, and Chair of WSFI Catholic Radio 88.5, as well as poet and the author of our Sports and Faith Series. The Sports and Faith include stories of athletes and others who live exemplary lives like George “Papa Bear” Halas, Pat’s grandfather. Surprising, inspiring, and all very human, Patrick McCaskey’s Poems About the Gospel is Patrick’s first book of poems where readers can find a few words of encouragement in every one. Poems About the Gospel is available from Sporting Chance Press, Amazon and select bookstores like the Little Way in Crystal Lake.
