Book of Durrow, beginning of the Gospel of Matthew
stone, wood and skin
all marked by writers
to convey the word of God.
Yet God, in mystery,
appears to fleshly hearts, made pure,
writing upon these
the very Word of God;
that they can be read of men and women
– true icons of Christ.
The Word, made flesh, dwells with us!
Written by someone on a retreat I led.
