Random quote: "The more humility infuses itself into you, and the more allowing you are of it, the less opaque your mind becomes, and the more light that can shine through." ~ Raj

Dear Veronica,

I have posted above about the book I have read & about all the different stories that have been written.
I will attempt here to post the end part of a beautiful poem that is at the end of the book"the Woman With the Alabaster jar" it is called "Sacred Reunion":

'At last he finds her
still clasping her alabaster jar.
Her joyful tears fall at his feet.
A second time she dries them with her hair.
But now he reaches for her hand.
"Come, Beloved; it is time.
Let us go together into the vineyard
to see if the vines are in bloom." (Cant.7:13)
Hand in hand now,
they walk in the desert garden.
And where their feet tread
a violet springs up from the ground,
an anenome lifts its head.
In their wake
buds swell on barren bough.
"No longer will you be called 'forsaken'
and your lands 'desolate',
but you shall be called 'beloved',
and your lands 'espoused.'" (Isa.62:4)

He whispers her name,
savouring its taste
delighting in the Bride of his longing.
Mary.

I feel there is a lot of symbolism in this poem that relates to us now & where we are at, the whole poem is really beautiful.

In love & peace Jenny.
