John O’Donohue– Author and Poet
What is a cheap way to understand the gift of sexuality and the body? What is a cherishing way to view your body and all aspects of creation?

Part #2 —John O’Donohue/ Patrick Kavanaugh
Reading Patrick Kavanaugh Discussing, “The Body is the Road”
Soul,’ I prayed,
I have hawked you through the world
Of Church and State and meanest trade.
But this evening halter off,
Never again will it go on.
On the south side of ditches
There is grazing of the sun.
No more haggling with the world. . . .’
As I said these words he grew
Wings upon his back. Now I may ride him
Every land my imagination knew.
