Epiphany Poem – Crib Visit Extended

The star burned like a flame, pointing the way to God, the King of kings; the wise men saw the sign and brought their gifts in homage to their great King.

I came
I continue to stay
adoring

I saw
I continue to behold
admiring

I heard
I continue to ponder
silently

I prayed
I continue to contemplate
attentively

I loved
I continue to embrace
peacefully

I promised
I continue to be faithful
joyfully

I rejoiced
I continue to celebrate
devotedly

I knelt
I continue to adore
faithfully

I gave
I continue to give
generously

One thought on “Epiphany Poem – Crib Visit Extended

  1. How beautiful! The Christmas Season is passing too quickly. The Incarnation a mystery beyond our comprehension. The world intrudes into our prayer lives during this Season, despite our best intentions to keep it out. Thank you, Sisters, for sharing your lives with us & giving us hope that Christ may be the center, the gyroscope for our lives, too! God bless all of you!

We'd love to hear from you...
