What Good Is it to Me?

What good is it to me
if this eternal birth of the divine Son
takes place unceasingly
but does not take place within myself?

And, what good is it to me
if Mary is full of grace and
if I am not also full of grace?
What good is it to me for the Creator to give birth to his Son
if I do not also give birth to him
in my time and my culture?

This, then, is the fullness of time:
When the Son of God
is begotten in us.

-Meister Eckhart
