Mary beckoned to Joseph one day

I carry a conceived soul in my womb

With rejoice I accepted and now say

Blessed be the Name of The Lord


And indeed, him just, sought to put her away

For fear he felt in his heart

But an angel arrived to prepare God’s way

Through a dream, instead of psaltery and harp


King of The Jews, Emmanuel                                                                      

Shall this newborn be                                                                               

Eternally faithful for all His Sheep                                                             

And raised to set the captives free                                                              


“Behold!” he said, for Gabriel he was

Mary carrieth a Savior for mankind

Wrought to erase sin from the earth

And in human flesh He shall be divine


Joseph arose from the trance in sleep

To immediately fulfill the words of grace

Granted by God’s favor in heap

He relocated Mary to a safer place


Out of Egypt they followed

The leading of the Creator’s call

Therefore settling in tranquil Bethlehem

Where present there lay a stable with straw


Upon the night of His Precious Birth

There came forth the future Risen Son

Mary and Joseph welcomed salvation

Which would be professed with every tongue

Jesus Christ,

This is the day of Your Holy Birth. May Your impartation of the Divine Grace of God be actualized in our hearts. For the salvation of the world, may we chant the hallowed peace of Your infancy. Praise, glory, honor, supremacy, authority, dominion be to The Holy Wise Child. Reveal Thyself in peace. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.

Published by Matthew Pope

A graduate of Belmont Abbey College, a Catholic, private institution, Matthew received his Bachelors of Arts degree in Theology in May of 2012. Upon registering for pastoral training in August of 2013, he was formerly a Master of Divinity student at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, pursuing the Evangelism program. With a transparent calling from God, his life dramatically changed as he received confirmation into The Catholic Church in November of 2016. Matthew's passion rests in serving the nations with the hope of The Gospel. Author of his lay-ministry, Even Unto The End Of The World, which was established on November 12, 2013, he has also produced his previous books: In Doctrine, Uncorrupt (which was released on February 15, 2014) and Assembled With One Accord (published on December 1, 2015), and is currently writing and planning for following books to come. With a revelatory vision, Matthew intends to encounter the culture and Christendom with truth. In addition, he intends to draw forth the rudiments of the Most Holy Catholic Faith to transform all Christian denominations into The One Church. Matthew confessed Jesus Christ as Savior at age seventeen, impressed with the desire to enter the ministry, in March of 2008. A native of Shelby, North Carolina, he was born on May 28, 1990. He now resides in Wake Forest, North Carolina where he has been actively writing since late 2013.
