The Covenant Made

The Cluny Missal of 1523

   The covenant made, instantly there was present the Word made flesh; and yet the pure Maid a Virgin still for ever.
   He is our Jesus, the good Jesus, lovely burden of a lovely Mother! He who has a throne in heaven, has a stable for his birth-place!
   May he, that for our sake was thus born, wipe away all our guilt; for our sojourn here is full of dangers.

by Dom Prosper  Granger O.S.B.
London, 1867
