MMX

Partial Lunar Eclipse
Photographed on Papa Stronsay,
First Vespers of the Octave of Christmas,
[7.00 p.m. New Year's Eve 2009]

At the Gate of the Year
I said to the man who stood at the gate of the year
"Give me a light
that I may tread safely into the unknown."

And he replied,
"Go into the darkness
and put your hand into the Hand of God

that shall be better to you than a light
and safer than a known way."

[Quoted by, H.M. King George VI
Christmas Message 1939]


Into the Darkness
A Lunar Eclipse
stands as a solar landmark
at the Gate of the Year of Our Lord Jesus Christ
MMX
and at the opening of the second decade of the century.
More we cannot say!
Let us put our hands into the Hand of God.

Dear Fathers and Brothers,

I pray:

May the Light of God shine on us,
May the Light of God drive away the darkness from our hearts

I wish you all the best
A.B.

If our light is darkness, then, imagine the darkness.
