Sun Down
March 17, 2002
Pavel Chichikov

It takes us in a long embrace
This orange falling solar sphere
So massive that it wrenches space
Holds us and the planet near.

Everything that sees must bow
Before the surface eyeless bright
That would but blind what it bestows
If not that it were grazing night.

A star it is all bound itself
Within the warping of the mass
Of that immense and golden calf
Horizon, noon and zenith passed.

But turn away the human face.
From greatness to what greatness is -
Sun to service, death as disc
Then be as dawn the Eucharist.

Come, New Sun! Son of Life's Mother
Christmas, 1998
Virginia M. Kimball

The days turn from darkness and brevity
to increasing life and light
In Your arrival of day, glory pierces
scarcity with love, comfort, and bright.

Nine centuries into living-gold Newness,
Our mother came and showed
Care, medallion on fountain blue dress,
Oval Sun in her Protection glowed.

Angel Gabriel always herald of breaking
in, haste in walking the Way
She, the temple now of God, always mother
like the vision in Blachernae.

Wrapping us in her red, life-giving veil
we, the body of her Sun in life's vale,
we, who no longer wail,
we live, now and forever, in this stormy gale!

Sincerely yours in Jesus and Mary,
Mike Rizzio, SOLT

Imitate Mary
Become like Jesus
Live for the Triune God

Seek the Light of Our Lord Jesus Christ
See you on the High Ground!
