The Nativity Of Our Savior Christ: Of The Journey Of Our Blessed Lady The Virgin From Nazareth To Bethlehem

THE III. POINT. 

 1. Thirdly, I am to consider the journey of the Virgin; the manner how she traveled, and the virtues that she exercised, with desire to imitate her therein. Pondering, how she being poor, the way long, and in the rigorous time of winter. she wanted not much trouble; and yet she carried all with admirable patience, and alacrity. She bare a great modesty in her eyes, her heart being placed on almighty God, and on the Son that she bare in her womb, with whom she entertained those Colloquies, and discourses, which before have been spoken of. If some other while she talked with her husband, it was wholly of God, and with very great sweetness: and she was not weary, though she went great with child, for her Son was not burdensome unto her; and the hope to see him speedily brought forth, gave her great alacrity, and pleasure to part from Nazareth, that she might the more quietly enjoy her Son, being far off from all acquaintance.

O blessed Virgin, there is no need to say unto thee, as to the spouse: That thou shouldest make hast, because winter was passed, the foul weather was ceased, and the flowers of the spring began to appear: for the desire of suffering, and obeying, maketh thee travel in the rigor of winter, that the flower of Jesse may be brought froth, in whom consisteth our repose. O that I might imitate the virtues, thou didst exercise in this journey, accompanying thy steps, though it wert not granted me to do it with my body.
