Minor Prophets, Major Wisdom

Although the fig-tree does not burgeon,
the vine bears no fruit,
the olive-crop fails,
the orchards yield no food,
the fold is bereft of its flock
and there are no cattle in the stalls,
yet I will exult in the Lord
and rejoice in the God of my deliverance.
The Lord God is my strength,
who makes my feet nimble as a hind's
and sets me to range the heights.

--Habakkuk 3:17-19, New English Bible

Rejoice, O Virgin Mother of God, Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among women and blessed is the Fruit of thy womb, for thou hast born the Savior of our souls.
