Holy is God’s name
My Soul bursts with love for the Living God
Morning pause, morning chill
Warmth in my heart, helping to warm the morning
Children and Lovers of God
Sun splashes the top branches and houses
Birds greet the morning, warming the sound.
“The Beloved has exalted me by a gift so great,
so unheard of,
that language is useless to describe it,
and the depths of love in my heart can scarcely grasp it.
I offer then all the powers of my soul in praise and thanksgiving.
As I joyfully surrender my whole life, my senses, my judgment…
for my spirit rejoices in the eternal Godhead (Beloved) of that JESUS, that SAVIOR, whom I have conceived in this world of time.”
(Mother Mary through Venerable Bede, priest)
Thank You God, my Father, my Mother, my Lover for the Gift of your wisdom, knowledge, understanding, counsel, reverence, courage and wonder/awe…
Truly the best Christmas ever!
So for Christmas, God has prepared a gift for the World, You and Me.
God has wrapped us in swaddling clothes after Baptism in water and fire.
We are confirmed in the Holy Spirit and sent as Good News to the world.
The Spirit of the Beloved is upon us because Our Beloved God has anointed us to bring Good News to the Poor. God is sending us from this Christ-Mass (Chrism Mass)
to proclaim liberty to captives (emotionally, economically, psychologically, physically), recovery of sight to the blind (especially inward and of the soul),
to let the oppressed go free,
and a Year (of mercy and love) acceptable to the Beloved God.
