Just settled in after noon Mass, after three or four weeks' absence writing, and of intensive activity out in the beautiful yet bustling world. Have sucked fully of the Mother of Life's breasts, milk of Christ in others. Discovered, also, some possessions that possess, to be given away in prayer and confession.
And now, along comes a gilded message from brother Seraphim, anointing the sunny afternoon, sharing Virgin Mary thoughts, Holy Spirit inspired through Hildegard of Bingen.
Christ Mass nearing! Still Advent waiting!
O Virga Mediatrix: Alleluia-Verse for the Virgin
Hildegard of Bingen (1097-2079)
English version by Barbara Newman
burst from your untouched
womb like a flower
on the farther side
of death. The world-tree
is blossoming. Two
realms become one.
