The second of four short meditations: Blood, Water, Oil and Fire. Each poem provides a different reflection on Advent. Listen, read and reflect.


Everlasting Father hovers over the waters, redeems life:
      Mary’s waters broke;
             John baptised Jesus;
                   Peter’s feet washed by the Son of Man;
                         Crucified, water poured out
                                Christ’s pierced side;
                                      Apostles drank living water,
                                             poured it out for all.
                                                    The Father’s way to redeem life
                                                          - more than we imagine.
