Have no anxiety at all, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, make your requests known to God. Then the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
Phil 4:6-7

O Mystical Rose


Stefan Lochner
Madonna of the Rose Garden

Mystical Rose

There is no rose of such virtue 
As is the rose that bear Jesu: 

For in this rose contained was 
Heaven and earth in little space: 
Res Miranda.

By that rose we may well see 
There be one God in Persons Three: 
Pares forma.

The angels sang, the shepherds too: 
Gloria in Excelsis Deo: 

Leave we all this worldly mirth 
And follow we this joyful birth:
