Christ Speaks to a Woman

Updated: Dec 12, 2018











You Woman

© by Janis G. Wick


You woman who nourishes the earth with her blood

You woman whose heart breaks like a glass bell

You woman whose mind raves like a cracked mirror

You woman who shatters like crystal sugar

You woman who is sweet as a lush plum

You woman who is bitter as an unripe fig

You woman who might leaven bread

You woman who might make a law

You woman

I give you My blood

Like a sweetmeat

Like a river of love

Like a tear of anguish

Like a balm of glory

I give you My body

Like a rock upon which you may lean

Like a pillow in which you may seek comfort

Like an embrace in which you may surrender

You woman

I wish to give these things to you.

You who have suffered will know My suffering.

You who have wept will weep for Me.

You who have suckled will feel the empty breast.

You who have felt pain will feel the nails driven in.

You who have thirsted will taste My thirst.

You who have sweat will sweat for me.

You woman

To you I wish to give My body and my blood.

Of you I wish to become.

Bring Me to life, giver of life.

You woman, bring Me to life.

Take of My body, My blood, My tears, My sweat, My thirst, My pain. Take Me.

Ah woman, I live.

This clash is so violent that stars have been ripped from their host galaxies to form a streaming arc between the two. In wide-field images of the pair the reason for their name becomes clear — far-flung stars and streamers of gas stretch out into space, creating long tidal tails reminiscent of antennae.”  ESA/Hubble & NASA.  www.spacetelescope.org
