Five Years' Thanksgiving

On January 30th, 2011, the 13 RSCJ from the probation group "Vivir y Amar con Alegria Profunda" (Live and Love with Deep Joy) professed final vows.

The poem below is my way of marking this year's anniversary.

Five Years' Thanksgiving

I am surrounded
by journey and love;

Love that is
forever freeing
and coming round

to whole,
to home,
to you;

You, my Yes,
my beckon and courage;

You, the adventure
of awe and becoming.

You, my strength,
and what grace I know.

You, the large,
the little, and all.

The sigh, the song,
the dance, the struggle,

The question, the laugh,
the hand that I hold

before rising again,
and saying again,


Kimberly M. King, RSCJ
