A Raging Bull, Cannonball Fire and a Nobleman

A Raging Bull, Cannonball Fire and a Nobleman

Annmaree Sutton’s poem, A Raging Bull, Cannonball Fire and A Noble Man, was born out of her work in Ignatian Spirituality and the Corpus Christi Community in Greenvale. The work of Corpus Christi reaches some of the most marginalised and vulnerable in the Melbourne community, providing accommodation and support for marginalised older men with a history of homelessness, addiction, or complex health needs. Two reflection questions follow for you to ponder.

What is your story of transformation and joy, which helps you explore the life of Ignatius? How might your stories bring healing to the world?

“Vulnerability, frailty, helplessness; are all found in the poem along with a strong relationship with God. How do you experience this in your life? Contemplate the picture; how does it speak to you?”
