Waxen pillars tipped with fire
in a ring of evergreen;
like our souls, the flames lift higher
with our prayers to a God unseen.
And at the core, waiting…
the bone white sepulcher of Christ –
the eucharistic cradle of divine incarnation,
which yields the Everlasting Light.
Although crippled by disease, I'm fully alive in love. I write about the terrible beauty and sacred wonder of life, while living with physical disability and severe dependency. A revert to the Catholic faith through atheism, I'm not afraid to ask life's big questions. I explore what it means to be fully human through my weekly blog and have written a book: It's Good to Be Here, published by Sophia Institute Press.
