My Fisherman

“The man who is to be a bishop, then, must be one with whom no fault can be found . . .” I Timothy 3:2 

A man: not one of the effete,
Nor one declined to Sodom’s heat;
If virginal, who might have wed –
And never slights the marriage bed
(Hence trusted by each man and wife
Clasped in the canticle of life).

A liturgist, both old and new,
Who, mastering his Fortescue,
Has ditched the Novus Ordo quite
To worship with Tradition’s rite;
Yet one not so fastidious
That every trend is hideous.

A scholar – but a pleasured mind,
To culture never dull or blind,
Who knows his poets off by heart –
Who travels all the realms of art;
Yet, at man’s deep debate – at need –
The rock that infidels must heed …

But, O the Fall! Bishops are marred!
(As all, from Paradise debarred);
Still, never may their Cross be made
Their tool to ply the Devil’s trade:
Make death seem life – killing to rule
What’s true, what’s good, what’s beautiful.

Andrew Huntley
