As white as the milk of Mary,
the cream of Humanity, pure food
that gives peace to the body. Because milk is
the white flower of love from the mother’s
womb, love that is given as sustenance.
In her womb, God engendered you with
Wisdom that is human and is virgin,
and with her milk you were nourished; you grew
in strength, in knowledge and in grace, Luke 1:80; 1:40.
staying in the wilderness until the day
of your manifestation to Israel, when you
emerged from the waters of the Jordan. Luke, 3.
