1st Sunday after Christmas

Luke 2:41-52

Did you not know?
After all the praise on high
after all the promise heard
of this one
------ the Messiah?
Did you not know
the presence of God in this your son?
Do we not know
who have heard the end of the story
who have seen the salvation of God?
Do we not know
and do we relegate this the Christ
to the role of a child in our lives
to be brought forth only
when it is to our liking?
How could Mary not know after all she had heard?
How could we
and not head the call?
Come let us walk in the way of the Lord
and hear anew
all the promise given
and the Praise on High
in the new year of our lives
