A Poem by Sr. Juliemarie McDonald for Sunday, December 11, 2011

A man named John was sent from God. He came for testimony, to testify to the light, so that all might believe through him. He was not the light, but came to testify to the light. John 1:6-8

Jesus,
Splendor of God,
Wonder of Love,
Bright Flame
Leaping from celestial heights
Impregnating whitened wax of woman
To issue forth as LIGHT
Piercing earthly darkness.
Refulgence, flickering in your dance of joy,
Delighted to be with the children of men,
Welcome!
