Et Verbum Caro Factum Est

"With the Divinest Word, the Virgin
Made pregnant, down the road
Comes walking, if you'll grant her
A room in your abode"

- St John of the Cross

In Him
the Divine Name is made manifest before men,
the Infinite is held in the arms of a mother,
the Unutterable lisps upon the tongue of an infant,
and the Eternal is poured forth in Time.

Glory to God in the Highest Heavens,
for He has dwelt in the lowliest of Earth.

Alleluia. Alleluia. Alleluia.
