I began this project to share a sampling of inspirational poetry by other contemporary Catholic writers who have touched my heart over the past year. Each poetic voice has its own unique style and message; yet together we share the mission to inspire and build up our brothers and sisters into the Body of Christ.


I would like to thank the following writers for the gift of their contributions:

Peggy Shearman

Juana Sanchez-Presas

Tricia of The Sacred Wounds of Jesus

Pavel Chichikov

Jonathan Hunter-Kilmer

Maria Rivera

I offer up this work for the intention of renewing the vigor of the Spirit - inspired arts within the laity.
