Mary, Holiness Was Born in You!

Grotto at Massabielle in Lourdes, France

Soon the babe comes
As the world waits;
Make us ready;
To walk in holiness;
To remember the fallen;
To think of the lost;
To give to the needing;
to forgive the unrepentant;
to bless the arrogant--
Seeing Christ
in a babe
in a boy
in a teen
in a man
in myself;
Our candles are lit;
we bow our heads;
holiness walks with me
Because Holiness 
was born in you.
