Protoevangelium

Protoevangelium
-On the Feast of the Exaltation of the Cross

The preemptive strike
by the Enemy
was at the family.

Through woman, the light of grace is born,
subduing the unresting revolt
lead by the Rebel of bearing light.

The war against the family
in the end, has already been won
by the Immaculate Heart’s triumph:

the Sacred Heart of her Son.
Tomorrow’s tears are today’s victory,
the unity with the Cross

that makes the family holy,
that keeps the family holy;
the Cross by which the Holy Family rises.
