The Christ, symbolizing Life and Light.
There is no handle outside;
We must invite Life in.

Eve of the Incarnation: A Greeting
Who stands at my door in the storm and rain
On the threshold of being?
One who waits till you call him in
From the empty night.
Are you a stranger, out in the storm,
Or has my enemy found me out
On the edge of bring?
I am no stranger who stands at the door
Nor enemy come in the secret night,
I am your child, in darkness and fear
On the verge of being
from “Incarnation”, poem 3,
by Kathleen Raine
Life offers Itself to us all
moment by moment.
On this night of the deepest Mystery
Life comes to stand at our door,
certainly no enemy,
saying “I am your child”.
We both are One.
This sacred night,
invite him in … forever.
