Offsite Post: ‘Tell Us Again’


Tell us again of the birth of God,

When the sun was dying

And humanity old and frail.


Tell of the strong Deliverer,

Who broke the chains around our necks,

And the compassionate Healer,

Who removed the iron lances from our hearts,

Placed there by the murderous tyrant.


Tell us of the young Maiden,

The Mother of God, who knew no man,

Whose womb became more spacious than the skies.


Tell us of the new stars in the heavens,

The new gods and goddesses – the martyrs and the saints –

Replacing the old constellations of the pagans,

Andrameda, Perseus, Hercules,

With those reborn and recreated in Christ,

St. Katherine, St. Paisius, the Great Basil.


Tell us again of the deep, dark night

When the Omnipotent was born as a helpless child,

 . . .

The rest is at https://www.reckonin.com/walt-garlington/tell-us-again.


Holy Ælfred the Great, King of England, South Patron, pray for us sinners at the Souð, unworthy though we are!

Anathema to the Union!
