In the darkness and stillness of the night Jesus was born.

 

“We wait in the darkness, expectantly, longingly.

In the darkness we can see the splendour of the universe –

blankets of stars,

the solitary glowings of the planets.

In the darkness of the womb,

Mortals are nurtured

And the Christ-child was made ready for the journey into light.

In the darkness the wise three found the star

That led them to you.

In the darkness of dreams you spoke to Joseph

And the wise ones

And you speak still to us.

In the darkness of despair and distress we watch

For a sign of hope from the Light of Lights.” (prayer rhythms)
