Carried in love...

Breath of Heaven,
carry us on the impulse
of Christ's love,
as easily as thistledown
is carried on the wind;
in the Advent season of our souls,
while He is formed in us,
in secret and in silence
the Creator
in the hands of His creatures,
as the Host
in the hands of the priest-
we may carry Him forth
to wherever He wishes to be
as Mary carried Him over the hills
on an errand of love,
to the house of Elizabeth.
