The Word created us; our Lord draws near; He speaks and His light shines Within us. Listen for The Word, for in the beginning is The Word. In our beginning is The Word. The coming of The Word is the coming of God, bringing the Joy of Advent. The Word brings the incarnate Christ; He is in the beginning with God; He is God. The Word lives is the world; the world yearns for The Word. We live in the world and in The Word; we yearn for The Word, and The Word yearns for us. The Word is of God; The Word is God. Listen, The Word speaks to us; it transforms us, fulfills our longing, our longing to share The Word. Join in prayer; prayer brings forth The Word; The Word speaks, and we listen.
