Poetry, VOLUME 12

Lectionary Poetry – Advent Week 2 (Year A)

With the dawn of Advent and a new church year this coming weekend, we are launching a new feature on our website, a weekly post of poetry that resonates with the lectionary readings for that week (Revised Common Lectionary).

Lectionary Reading:   Matthew 3:1-12

St. John the Baptist
(St. John’s Eve)
Malcolm Guite

Found in:
Sounding the Seasons

SNIPPET:

So John the Baptist pioneers our path,

Unfolds the essence of the life of prayer,

Unlatches the last doorway into faith,

And makes one inner space an everywhere.
