(Wisdom 18)

When a profound silence covered all things and night was in the middle of her course; your all-powerful Word, O Lord, bounded down to earth.
    
Reflection:

How beautiful the image of our God “bounding down” to us in the midst of nights’ profound silence.

Prayer:
Lord God, so much of your love for us is shrouded and steeped in mystery. It is with the simplicity of little children that we trust implicitly in your sustaining love for us.
