[Written for the Sentinel.]

Light

With vision of a seer, glad and free,The artist casts bright halos, as he paints,Around the heads of fair and holy saints,That humankind their holiness may see.So Raphael made circles clear and white,And Fra Angelico, great rounds of gold;Murillo, softened radiance,—gentle, bold;All knew the truth that holiness means Light.

How humankind makes visible its thought!One man is seen as mortal, one as saint.Our work it is to know that God has wroughtAll good in all: in thought let each one paintHis brother man with halo lasting, bright;For everywhere shines God's eternal light.

We'd love to hear from you!
