Angels: The annunciation


Do you believe in angels?
A friend asked me that.

Yes I do. Certainly I do.
How do I know?
I just know.

The angel Gabriel
messenger from God
Came to tell Mary that she would conceive—

By the Holy Spirit
 said he.
And Mary believed.
In her heart, she believed.

By the Holy Spirit Christ was born
On Christmas Day.

So let us all celebrate
 this Holy Christmas Day
When the Divine Child was born in Bethlehem
Jesus the Son of God
And is born within us all again and again.
