How Can This Be

Life is a mystery,
to be lived.
A sacred secret,
to be shared.

Not a problem,
to be solved.
Nor a trial,
to be endured.

How can this be,
we may ask?
As did Mary,
in times past.

The Holy Spirit will
come upon you.
The angel answered her,
me, and you too.

Therefore the child
to be born,
will be called
God’s beloved one.

The inspiration for this poem came from a Gabriel Marcel quote I mentioned a few days ago and Christine Valters Paintner’s new book The Soul of a Pilgrim.
