Food for the radiant soul

HE rose again on the third day, in accordance with the Scriptures, and ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father;
he is coming again in glory to judge the living and the dead; and his kingdom will have no end.

Nicene Creed.

All night vigil, reading the Gospels

“That which is dark shall be made clear, and counsel shall go forth.” Reading the Gospel at an all-night vigil.

AND still men find in Scripture every law which God, in words of truth, gave Moses on that journey.

If life’s interpreter, the radiant soul within the breast, will unlock with the keys of the spirit this lasting good, that which is dark shall be made clear, and counsel shall go forth. It hath the words of wisdom in its keeping, earnestly teaching the heart, that we may not lack the fellowship of God, or mercy of our Lord. He giveth us, as learned writers say, the better and more lasting joys of heaven.

Attributed to Caedmon (7th century).

CHRIST, the life and the way, from among the dead, journeyed with Cleopas and Luke, to whom he was made known at Emmaus when he broke the bread. Their souls and hearts were aflame as he talked with them on the road and explained with the Scriptures what he had undergone. With them let us cry aloud, ‘He has been raised and has appeared to Peter!’

  1. And may our hearts be filled with the love of our Living Christ at all times as we continue on this journey!

    By the way, I love your other site, english language & history, as well. I majored in English in Seoul- and my great love for the language is still very much alive! I appreciate your good works and teachings!

  2. Amen!

    Thank you, I’m delighted you like the site. Do visit often! though I can see you have no need of its services. I must admit it’s been a bit slow to take off. But it has been a very welcome project for me in my enforced idleness, and maybe it’ll lead to something more.
