A Verse from
Prudentius, Early Catholic Poet
“Elizabeth Heralds Christ as God”
Believe what says the angel
who was sent from the Father’s throne,
or if your stolid ear catch not
the voice from heaven,
be wise and hear
the cry of aged woman, now with child.
O wondrous faith!
The babe in senile womb
greets through his mother’s lips
the Virgin’s Son, our Lord.
The child unborn
makes known the cry
of the Child bestowed on us,
for speechless yet
He caused that mouth
to herald Christ as God.
Prudentius, Catholic Poet
(348 – c. 410)
