|Window and chapel of Mary in Notre Dame de Paris|
Sweet Lady of the Snows,
when we are most convinced
that the light is in danger
of disappearing from this world
|Lit votives in front of statue of Notre Dame de Paris|
in Notre Dame Cathedral, Paris taken on the Nativity
You step through the darkness,
and carry the Sun of Justice into our midst.
The highest angelic orders
bear witness to the miracle ripening
in your womb.
Within the mysterious heart of deep winter,
the seed of everlasting life is preparing
|Full moon at Notre Dame de Paris on eve of Nativity Feast|
of Mary 2014
to break through the frozen mantle
that covers our hearts,
radiating healing and hope
where we had witnessed only desolation.
we are ready to be amazed.
