‘My God and my (Most) !’

“My God and my (Most) !”

‘God’  and  ‘All’,

two so-close words

yet still so far apart-

a tension there,


un-given All

to Him

who asks for All.


What if I give

this bit

and that,-

the most of me, perhaps,

but still

not All?

I want to hold some back

to feel secure,

that I am in control.

He waits, he looks, he quietly



oh so thoroughly

wants nothing less

than All.


And so, each day, he comes to me again

and sits by my Well

and asks—– for All.

“If you but knew who it is who says ‘Give me—’            (John 4:10)

you would have asked him and he would have given you…”



(Just do it!)


Seamus Devitt, C.Ss.R.
