Mallardi’s poems center on Christ Jesus, the Christian faith and personal experiences. This book is written for those who desire to know God’s heart and His love for the world.
When Michael Mallardi was troubled with respiratory disease in 2015 his physical abilities where limited. Paradoxically, lines of poetry began blooming and his journey was just started. Even when he did not have a particular affinity for poetry, one of the most beautiful sentences were written about our Saviour:
"Jesus arose majestically from the altar,
Miraculously in the hands of the priest,
Angels surrounded the altar in adoration,
Spirit bears witness to a heavenly feast"
Readers through this beautiful work will find how perfection and beauty merge and at the end of the road, we find Christ showing us the way to The New Jerusalem:
"At the intersection of Hope and Charity,
Take a right to Ten Commandments Drive.
True faith will provide a short cut,
The pursuit of sanctity enables all to arrive."
Michael P. Mallardi was born in East Harlem, on St. Patrick’s Day, March 17, 1934. Born at home to a mother one generation removed from her Italian immigrant roots and an Italian immigrant father. He joined the American Broadcasting Company in 1956, and then spent the next 40 years, both within and outside ABC, in various executive positions in the media industry. He eventually became ABC’s Chief Financial Officer and one of three of the company’s Executive Vice Presidents.
He and Sylvia, his wife of 58 years, have two daughters Karen and Stephanie and one fabulous granddaughter, Natalie Joan, who has been his sunshine from the moment of her birth.
