Christ, our only true light,

before whose bright cloud

your friends fell to the ground:

we bow before your cross

that we may remember in our bodies

the dead who fell like shadows;

and that we may refuse to be prostrated

before the false brightness of any other light,

looking to your power alone

for hope of resurrection from the dead.


From All Desires Known by Janet Morley

Note: The Feast of the Transfiguration is also Hiroshima Day.
