Starry, Colossal, blinding, bare Look down out of sunshine Everywhere Lo: I am dust: dust too is fair. A Man: yet all men are the same Striving and stammering to proclaim Thy deafening and confounding Name. A man; unfathomed Fatherhood, Only a man of bone and blood Who found thy good earth Passing Good.
– G.K. Chesterton (“A Man,” Collected Works, Volume X)
Reflecting on humanity, Chesterton stands in awe of the gift of human life. He is saying: even though we are made of dust, dust too is part of creation, part of God’s plan. As we are signed with the cross made of ash today, let us, too, recall that we are dust, and dust is fair, even Good because it’s from God.
O Jesus, meek and humble of heart, Hear me. From the desire of being esteemed, Deliver me, Jesus. St. Joseph, pray for us. Gilbert and Frances Chesterton, pray for us.
