PSALM FOR ST BARTHOLOMEW'S DAY

 

  • We don’t know anything about him, just a disciple:
      only his father’s name, yet he’s a saint
     
  • one of the closest to Jesus, one of the twelve:
      Bartholomew the famous, whom nobody knows.
     
  • There can be hope for us, whom nobody knows:
      not famous or powerful people, we’re holy too;
     
  • simply by being disciples, called to be saints:
      staying close to Christ we can be famous!
     
  • My name is all I need, just to be me:
      for in your kingdom of love, I need no more.
