An Invitation

An Invitation

Come to the poverty of the stable.

Come to the poverty of the homeless.

Come to the emptiness of those who have lost everything.

Come and dwell with us in this new advent,

this new beginning,

to make room in our hearts

for the arrival of love far beyond

our little hopes and dreams.

Light the candles with the flame of hope.

Light them with the burning

of the longing within your heart.

Our God of Love

waits for the opening of our hearts

to come rushing in like a river

to fill us with the Divine Wine

and to touch us with

with the light

of love.
