Wholeness and brokenness (reflecting on the honesty of the gospels)

Wholeness and brokenness

can be strangely misleading.

We wear our “wholeness”

like a badge of honour

seldom recognising

that it is a shield;

our prized vulnerability a mask

deflecting gazes

which we fear

may linger too long

and see what is within.

Yet, if we could but own

our brokenness -

find it held by fellow-pilgrims

as a sacrament -

we may yet discover

that in our fragile, broken selves

we are more whole

than ever we were

hiding behind our strength;

and where we see only fracture

God sees instead

a window

through which

His light and life

may flow.
