My prayer for Eire’
Beautiful Eiren! You fill both my heart and my dreams. May God defend you long after you would look for another to call your hope. May your lands be filled with reconciliation and honor…not to defend denomination, or tenor traditions with tyranny, but to dismiss all that would seem a grudge and count it all as loss, to know the true God over which you still fued. I pray the Lord to galvanize you my lady. May your name once again be not just fanciful, festal noise to the world’s ears, but a stronghold of passion falling as faithful euphony upon the Lord’s.
May you not yearn to be known as Catholic or Protestant…but above all else, as Christ’s alone. You are already beautiful, but if you could but remember your first Love, you could be resplendent again.
