Blessed are you,
and blessed is the fruit of your womb.
And blessed is she who believes
that there will be a fulfillment
of what was spoken to her by the Lord.
—Luke 1.41, 45
Trust my delight in you.
I have chosen you
and conceived my love in you,
to bear my light into the world.
You are part of something grander
than you can imagine.
You are part of my great work
of the mending of the world,
and though you are small in this world
your love will change it,
because it is I who work through you.
You are pregnant with my love,
and you must bear it.
It will require labor and pain,
but it will be life, unquenchable life.
The world won’t be changed by power from on high,
but by love from within,
however small, however humble.
When you are discouraged or worried,
remember that I am in you;
the holy child you protect protects you.
I will give you a sign: something in you
will leap at the presence of this miracle
unfolding in others as well. You are not alone.
Let your trust in this be your light.
I love you.
