Come, Lord, Jesus;
Fill your temple.

Come, Breath of Life;
Inspire.

I breathe in the Spirit of God.
I breathe out the world.

I breathe in Jesus.
I breathe out the flesh.

I breathe in the holy.
I breathe out all that is of the Evil One

Come, Babe of Bethlehem;
Make me your manger.

Come, O Incarnate God;
Be born in open hearts, anew.

  1. Joann, This poem reminder me of this poem by Jessica Powers:
    I live my Advent in the womb of Mary.
    And on one night when a great star swings free
    from its high mooring and walks down the sky
    to be the dot above the Christus i,
    I shall be born of her by blessed grace.
    I wait in Mary-darkness, faith’s walled place,
    with hope’s expectance of nativity.
    I knew for long she carried me and fed me,
    guarded and loved me, though I could not see.
    But only now, with inward jubilee,
    I come upon earth’s most amazing knowledge:
    someone is hidden in this dark with me.

    • What a beautiful poem and how true it is. Mary is the Mother of all by grace. We are Christ’s Body; what implications! We could meditate on this forever.
