Millions We Are!
Millions we are Across the world But I never really felt it before. Now, I see it online. Often, we were more or less than a 100 At any mass I attended. Now, I see people from hundreds of countries Connecting for the mass we would soon attend on YouTube. United States, Canada, Nigeria, Russia, Sri Lanka… the whole world! The number of my fellow faithful Just blows me away Whenever I connect on my laptop for a mass! Millions we are! It’s marvellous to feel in community… To feel that we are not just a few sharing the same values. It overwhelmingly warms my heart. Then, a question started arising in me: Why don’t we carry our heavy weight to change the world? Why don’t we change a world plagued with injustice and corruption… And tend to the most vulnerable and the poor Who are painfully disregarded by our society’s mainstream values? Maybe we have the number on our side To undermine the Master-Slave Dynamic So well-rooted in our society’s dominant institutions. Why would not our values substitute this mainstream dynamic? For one moment, I realized my naïve daydreaming. But there might be a truth in that daydreaming. Millions we are, virtually and in reality And great could be our positive impact in our society! Indeed, millions are we!
