MARY


She stands at the crossroads
Of time and eternity
Intersection of all creation

A desire as old as Eden
Burning in her soul
The yearning of every child

Who has graced the earth
Embodiment of  humanity's Hope 
Of Redemption, Restoration

She has held in her heart
The wandering aridity
Of the desert and there 

He comes to find 
Lifting her up and keeping
Her the apple of His eye

Humanity has found
A response to God in her
From her is deliverance

Brought forth in Christ
In whom we are born and breathe
Our perfect peaceful consummation

Healing for our scars

As a Prayer

Mary,

You stand at the crossroads
Of time and eternity
Intersection of all creation

A desire as old as Eden
Burning in your soul
The yearning of every child

Who has graced the earth
Embodiment of humanity's Hope 
Of Redemption, Restoration

You have held in your heart
The wandering aridity
Of the desert and there 

God comes to find 
Lifting you up and keeping
You the apple of His eye

Humanity has found
A response to God in you
From you is deliverance

Brought forth in Christ
In whom we are born and breathe
Our perfect peaceful consummation

Healing for our scars

Amen!

  1. The words are very beautiful and touch my heart with wonder and love. Mary knows aridity and knows the joy of giving birth to Jesus. She is our Mother and shows us the way.
    John was in Hastings at one time. I phoned him there on my way back to Africa. I can imagine how beautiful the place is. It is good for you to be alone. God is with you.
    Love and prayers, Margaret Anne
