The Light of Christ

To Mary's pure uplifted consciousnessWas Christ revealed.An angel of the Lord appeared to her:Spirit disclosed to her God's fatherhood.Receiving this immaculate ideaOf God within her heart, she pondered it,And by the light of Truth there was unveiledTo her pure thought man's unity with Love.And unto her in Bethlehem was bornA babe, herald of the Christ, the WordMade manifest.And so within the heart of each of usWho turns awayFrom false and fettering beliefs of senseTo seek in Spirit our identity,The angel of the Lord appears again:A holy and compelling peace pervadesOur thought, arousing us from matter's dreams;In silent wonder pure assurance dawnsThat we in Truth with purity are one,And in our heart the radiant lightOf Christ is born.
