An Advent Poem by Saint John of the Cross

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 mid-wife of God, each of us.

Yes there, under the dome of your being

does creation come into existence eternally,

through your womb, dear pilgrim

the sacred womb of your soul,

as God grasps our arm 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.
