Contemplation Gives Birth to Charity


Contemplation gives birth

To charity


So let us contemplate

This holy mystery


Of a babe

In a manger


Not just

For the predictable human feelings


Of warmth

And protectiveness


But also

For the world vision


Of the man

He will become


In divine

Compassionate humanity.


‘Nativity’, Van Dyck
