Messiaen: He has gone away

May 9, 2009

    In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
    -- John 14:2 (KJV)

    He has gone away, the Well-Beloved,
    For our sake!
    He is risen, the Well-Beloved,
    For our sake!
    He has prayed, the Well-Beloved,
    For our sake!
    He has spoken, He has sung,
    The Word was with God.
    Praises of the Father,
    Substance of the Father,
    The stamp and issue forever,
    In Love!
    Word of Love!
    ... Olivier Messiaen (1908-1992), Three Small Liturgies of the Divine Presence [1944] (see the book)

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You have sent us Your Spirit!
