Mary Today

by Mary McDevitt

If this Christmas finds you burdened,
With no happy, joyous smile;
Maybe Mary being weary
Might rest with you.

If in her shelter-seeking,
From Inn to crowded Inn,
She meets but greed and battle,
Hatred, death, and sin.

But finds a humble welcome
In the dwelling of your heart,
Though it bring you pain and sorrow,
Could you ask her to depart?

When submitting, you accept
Her burden with a prayer...
Oh the glory of your joy
To find the Christ child there!
