Lève-toi Ô jour

Lève-toi Ô jour
Que les atomes entrent dans la danse !
Afin que de joie
Sans pieds ni tête, les âmes entrent dans la danse
Celui pour l’amour de qui
Danse le firmament
Je te dirai à l’oreille
Où est le lieu de sa danse

He is risen indeed !
Happy Easter !

Vers Noël, pas à pas

Halloween, from the fear of death to life

They stand beside us even as we grieve,
The lone and left behind whom no one claimed,
Unnumbered multitudes, he lifts above
The shadow of the gibbet and the grave,
To triumph where all saints are known and named;

“Mother Maria Gysi, one of the founders of the Monastery of the Assumption, Whitby, dreamed that she was a “a big, square, rough old house; there was no glass in the windows, all very poor. But a lamp burning night and day for anyone who would come for a night or longer into one of the rooms — not to me. I would hardly know who was there. . . I was just the house, a place of welcome and warmth and infinite compassion — being one with each inwardly, demanding nothing, teaching nothing — above all no judging or categories or piousity of any kind, but the light every night showing the way.”

“I think we must ask ourselves: do we work like that? And are we the sort of people that people would want to get to know?” Fr Erik laughs.”
