The Infant


DB_DSC7162 Triptych

Praise God for babies

I always think what it would be like

To see the loveliest Baby of all

And at a retreat I was asked to carry Him

Of course it was in my contemplation

Of a scene in the infancy narratives

And my Retreat Master was quick to ask me

Did you accept to carry Him?

Yes, Father, not only was I eager

I could not let Him go

The Infant Jesus

So pure

So holy

So lovely to behold

Lost in contemplation

I could only continue to stay
