Passage

Luke 4-6 (various passages), Matthew 11:27
Jesus as Friend and Model

"If You Want"

If
You Want,
the Virgin will come walking down the road
pregnant with the holy,
and say,

“I need shelter for the night, please take me inside your heart,
my time is so close.” Then, under the roof of your soul, you will witness the sublime
intimacy, the divine, the Christ
taking birth...

(from the Love Poems from God: Twelve Sacred Voices from the East and West, translation Daniel Ladinsky, Penguin Compass)
