Aaron’s hands

These are the hands of Aaron

Ever so helpful

For years this young man used his hands to serve

With his vigour and his strength he would push

A wheelchair of a church sacristan in his 80s

Patiently taking care of the old retiree

Mindful that the old sacristan’s wife

Could not do the service

Could not take her husband to the Sunday Mass

Yes, these are the hands of Aaron

The hands that feared not that they would get dirty

He peeled the onion with determination

Not a word escaped his lips

His was a prayer made in silence

Within the heart, within the heart

Praise God for this young man!

May his journey of faith be strong

May his companions in the university

and all his fellow catechumens and all the rest

be there for him

Praise God!
