Christ-Mass Fr.

On December 16, 2010, in Poem, by claretian

A chapel cave, its candle light

From stars that pierce the silent night;

An Infant Victim, born to die,

Revered by angels wafting nigh.

.

Humankind, in heedless glee

Regales in mindless revelry.

From the manger-altar where he lies

God views his earth with infant eyes.

.

Christ as Eucharist born again—

Emmanuel with us, now as then.

His love which crib and cross display

Enswathes our souls on Christmas Day.

John H. Hampsch, C.M.F.
