Behold the handmaid of the Lord ...Luke 1:38

Presentation

Mary, by your unconditional Yes,

lean down to us who stammer out our weak assent

and tremble lest God take us at our word.

 

By your swift love, redeem our paltriness,

when with a sparing hand we dole

from what, unmeasureed, has been heaped on us.

 

Without a backward glance

you followed when He led to Calvary.

Come, lest from that all-demanding love

we turn, Lot’s wife, immobile, hard as stone. 

 

Ah, Mary, little one

whom God raised from the depths unto the heights,

help us, we pray, grow small enough again

to marvel at the wonder of our call.

~ Raphael Consedine, pbvm

 

Let us pray:

You wait for us until we are open to you.
We wait for your word to make us receptive.
Attune us to your silence, 
speak and bring your son to us – 
Jesus the word of your peace.
