Errand of love...

Above all, love each other deeply... I Peter 4:8a

 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.
