Thursday of the Second Week of Advent

The God Whom earth, and sea, and sky,
Adore, and laud, and magnify,
Who o’er their threefold fabric reigns,
The virgin’s spotless womb contains.
"Quem terra, pontus, aethera"
by Venantius Fortunatus, 6th century
from the Roman Breviary

...You dwell in this little palace of my soul,
You who are so great a King....
There is nothing more wonderful than to see You, my God,
whose greatness could fill a thousand worlds
and still more worlds,
confine Yourself within so small a thing!
~St. Teresa of Avila
