The Fifth Joyful Mystery

by Fr. Francis Martin

Three tomb days
they searched,
and then returned
to the Place of Meeting
where Simeon had held him
and prophesied this.

The will of the Father
- he is of age now -
holds him like a magnet.

Those who hear my Father -
they are brother
and sister
and mother
to me.

O Wisdom,
Pearl of great price,
Treasure hidden.

Behold we have left all
to follow after you
and find you
and sell all to have you.

And still,
he goes down with them
and is subject to them,
and grows
in wisdom,
in stature,
in grace,
with God and man.

And she pondered in her heart.
What Child is this?
I am his mother,
he is my Father.

He grows up before me
like a sapling
like a servant,
like a pilgrim to a Temple
beyond the stars.

And now I know
that I will never
seek the Living
among the dead.
