From the Magnificat of Reconciliation – Miryam of N azareth bt Ann Johnson

You are the gentle o­ne who reaches out in tenderness
     from age to age
     to caress with your hand the heads of those
     who bend their necks.
With powerful arms you embrace each of us.
The proud hearts that we hold out to you,
     you break and scatter.
You pull down the structures and fantasies with which we fortify ourselves,
     and you teach us the simple things.
When we are hungry you fill us with good things.
     When we are glutted you teach us patience
     that we may come hungry to your table……
We remember your tenderness as we walk….
     For you are Yahweh
     in whom we trust.
