Is all that matters.

Is all Who matters.

I agree. Jorge doesn't matter. I don't even remember who Jorge is. Jorge? Who's Jorge?

ONCE
THERE
WAS
A
FATHER

Once there was a father
Who loved his little girl
He held her hand and walked to Mass
So she could see the Pearl.

“My darling there is silver,
My darling there is gold
But the greatest price is sacrifice
The world keeps that untold.

The world can give you silver,
With gold it can entice
Diamond, topaz, rubies
But none can match Pearl’s price.

Sacrifice gave birth to you
Sacrifice it fed
Sacrifice it guided you
Sacrifice it bled.

For every drop of blood He shed
Gave us the faith to trust
And made us rich in sacrifice
To give you Bread not crust.

And for awhile sometimes we stray
Believing not in Creeds
But when things don’t sustain our souls
Then turn to Pearl that bleeds.”

Failing father said he wished
“For every time…a penny,”
He heard the daily words so rich
“…be shed for you and many.”

The little girl she cried
Raining on his bed a flood
But father saw her sacrifice
“Your tears are crystal blood.”

Once there was a father
Who loved his little girl
He held her hand for his last Mass
But left her with…the Pearl.
