And with fear and trembling stand:
Ponder nothing worldly minded,
For with blessing in His hand
Christ our God to earth descendeth,
Our full homage to demand.
King of kings, yet born to Mary,
As if old on earth He stood.
Lord of Lords in human vesture,
In body and the blood.
He will give to all the faithful
His own self for heavenly food,
Let all Mortal Flesh Keep Silence.
(~Liturgy of St. James the 4th)
Oh Dear Father, how can we take into our finite minds the magnitude of these words? From heaven to a manger, to live a sinless life, to pay the price for MY sins on the cross, rise again, prepare a place for me in heaven....I want to shout...but I can only fall on my face, and keep silence, my heart bursting with love and graditude. I love You. Amen
