by Ezio M. Tozzi
|Seeds of grace most truly start --
Within the realm of a hopeful heart.
The beneficial reality of this seed --
Is bringing light to souls in need.
Grace is a seed, that's not forbidden...
In Helping others to daily cope,
In deeds, the light of the world are we,
How hopeful it becomes, when we are aware,
Each humble task, in this world we trod,
Ezio Tozzi read this poem at the conclusion of the Mass on July 14, 2001, when his son Ross was ordained a Catholic priest in St. Joseph Church in Nome, Alaska.
