Place in me a star — Epiphany wish.

Richard Bott, remarkable poet and liturgist of British Columbia, wrote this poem for Epiphany last year. I loved it so much that I saved it for this year!

Place in me a star,
my God,
that I might burn brightly
 with your love.
Explode in me,
that I might burst
with the possibility of your grace.
Shine so brightly, in my words,
in my actions,
that the world might see
only
you.
Make me an Epiphany,
my God!
