Love Sustains. (Barbara Schwarz, OP, of the Sisters of St. Dominic of Amityville, N.Y.)

"Joseph was not a passive witness to the birth of the child.
Mary and Joseph peered in each others’ eyes
And knew a love that sustained them.
Let us fill our celebrations of Christ’s birth
with love that sustains our family of Earth!"
