Spiritual Quote of the Day (Teresa Brayton, on What Jesus May Have Seen and Heard in Bethlehem)

“Did You hear the cries of the groping blind,
   The woe of the leper’s prayer,
The surging sorrow of all mankind,
   As You lay by Your Mother there?
Beyond the shepherds, low bending down,
   The long, long road did You see
That led from peaceful Bethlehem town
   To the summit of Calvary?”— Irish nationalist, writer and poet Teresa Brayton (1868-1943), “A Christmas Song,” in Joyce Kilmer’s Anthology of Catholic Poets, edited by Shaemas O’Sheel (1939)
