“The Healer”, a poem by CASC/ACSS member Ciaran McKenna

“Over these past few weeks I have some wonderful and intense encounters with people / staff who have found their way to my office. One is with a young mother who is on a wonderful journey of healing and spiritual growth.

She shared an experience she had with her young son last when he said, “mommy, I am a healer, and I have been for years and I can heal you”. Once she shared the story with me it touched to the core in a way of “knowing” he spoke the truth, and the attached piece was born. As you each lean into the meaning of Holy week and Easter this piece may assist your reflections,”

Wishing you all a gentle Easter
– Ciarán McKenna

The Healer
My son
the healer
stands before me
as healer, my child
a healer.

“I have been a healer for ever mommy
through my present years
and in my other lives.
I bear the mark of a healer
and I can heal you
if you let me
let me in
let the healing begin
and you too are a healer
it just needs to be revealed,
however first I will heal you”

My son, the healer.
