John 1: 10-18; Sirach 24:1-12
Wisdom nudges us forward Wisdom nudges us forward

Holy Midwife, you rejoiced at the birth of creation.

I hold up to you the intuited mystery of something new being birthed in me. It has no face, no name, no sound, no shape. I only know that something unperceived is meant to come to life inside the womb of my deepest self. Is it greater depth or valuable clarity? Is it a whole new way of being?

I fail to understand what it might be. My knowing is as faint as the light of a new moon.  I know I must trust in your unfailing care. You will be attentive to this unnamed one who struggles mightily to be released within me.
