If You Want

If You Want  

Today, on Christmas I offer this poem from St. John of the Cross for you to reflect on as you open to the possibilities of Emmanuel coming to you and making his home in your life. Merry Christmas everybody!

If you want
the Virgin will come walking down the road
pregnant with the holy and say,
“I need shelter for the night, please take me inside
your heart, my time is so close.”
Then, under the roof of your soul, you will witness the
sublime intimacy, the divine, the Christ
taking birth forever,
as she grasps your hand for help, for each of us
is the midwife of God, each of us.
Yes there, under the dome of your being does creation
come into existence externally, through your womb,
dear pilgrim—the sacred womb of your soul,
as God grasps our arms for help; for each of us is
His beloved servant never far.
If you want, the Virgin will come walking
down the street pregnant
with Light and sing . . .
