A Christmas Poem

In the bleak midwinter
The Christ Child again 
asks to enter into our hearts
and melt the ice that insists 
on forming there
against our better judgment-- 
our attempts at thawing
only serving to set it afire
in a soul-consuming explosion--
our attempts at cooling 
turning it once again
to ice.

Dymphna's favorite quotes

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
