“ As for myself,

I am absorbed in a profound rapture :

the face of The Father is revealed to me,

and I contemplate the divine mystery of his merciful love ;

The Word,

who has taken human form in my virginal womb,

becomes present in my motherly arms as a newborn Babe,

and I cover Him with kisses and tears ;

The Holy Spirit looks with pleasure on the fruit of his overshadowing. ”

" The gentle and loving assistance of my most chaste spouse,

Joseph, surrounds me like a caress.

It is he who seeks to make the place more hospitable ;

who prepares the crib in a warmer manger ;

who looks about for a shield against the rigor of the cold ;

who stays close to me and joins in my great prayer ;

who sees the heavens open ;

who contemplates in wonder the prodigy,

hears the song of the angels and is conscious of the peace

which comes down from heaven ;

who opens the door to the poor and the little ones and graciously accepts the simple gifts of the shepherds. "
