    But then it was in the language of poetry He Himself spoke at His Last Supper when He said: " Do this in commemoration of Me "-promising us in the Bread of Angels everlasting life.


    JUNE 30TH.

    Hark to the prayer of a hurrying age O Saint of the hurrying feet, O Blessed seer whose blinded eyes Saw the old and the new worlds meet.

    You who tore the clouds from the darkened West That the dawn from the East shine through;

    Who taught the wisdom of Nazareth In the city that Plato knew.

    Who brought to the foetid heart of Rome The hill-winds of Galilee,

    Who guarded the freedom of Christ's sweet yoke For the peoples yet to be;

    As you toiled for the span of your Master's life At a task that might never wait. For the sake of a deathless love, sprung red From the root of a deadly hate.

    His wisdom the light of your burning pen His interests a fiery goad Since He spake your name in the Syrian noon On the white Damascus road.
