Thus your ardent charity, And your true simplicity, Are the linens you can bring .

APRIL: A LYRE MY little Sister, ’waiting there, Your gift for Bethlehem’s Babe to hear, Your heart for His melodious lyre Is what He asks in accents clear. In heaven’s high court swells up alway The angels’ song with incense sweet; And yet He loves, in Carmel’s shade, To hear your praises at His feet. So, dearest Sister! ’tis your heart, Whose melodies our Lord desires. By night, by day, consume away, With songs of love, in love’s sweet fires.

MAY: SOMES ROSES Your soul, dear, is a lily sweet, — Jesus and Mary love it well.

AUGUST: A SMILE Ah! the wicked world despises Love that Jesus feels for men; And His heavenly eyes are moistened With hot bitter tears for them; And His little arms He stretches, Dearest Sister, unto you. Shall I tell you what the comfort That I think He seems to sue? See! His look is asking of you, And His sweet eyes seem to say: Smile on all! That smile suffices To wipe all My tears away. Blessed Chiara Luce Badano

NOVEMBER: A STAR   Sometimes, when all the skies are black With gloomy clouds, and no stars shine, Our little Jesus grieves alone, — He craves your love, yes, yours and mine. Then give to Him the light He wants, Be like a bright and shining star; And let your virtues, like a lamp, Shed welcoming radiance near and far. So may your rays lead souls to heaven, The sinful souls for whom He died. This Child Divine, our Morning Star, Asks you to be His star, His bride.

Palace of King of kings Palace of Versailles DECEMBER: A PALACE The great and noble of the earth, In palaces they proudly dwell; The poor and lonely find their home In hut, in cabin, and in cell. So in a humble cattle-shed The Christ-Child lies, this Christmas night; Leaving His palace in the skies, He veils His glory’s dazzling light. Your heart loves poverty, I know; You count yourself divinely blest; So Jesus finds a palace-home Within your humble, happy breast.

PowerPoint Presentation:

The Angel, taking again the Child Jesus in his arms, sings what follows: The dear Child Jesus thanks you all, For all your gifts, this Christmas night; And all your names His tiny hand Within His book of life will write. Since in this Carmel He hath found Such joy and peace, Rewards in heaven He’ll store for you, That shall not cease. And if you ever faithful are To all the vows you make to-night, Then love will give you wings to fly Unto a far sublimer height. One day, in heaven’s dear fatherland, Your exile o’er, Jesus and Mary you shall see Forevermore!
