O Rising Sun, …

The Hopi & Zuni Festival of Shalako continues today.

A thousand candles can be lit from the flame of one candle,
and the life of the candle will not be shortened.
Happiness can be spread without diminishing that of yourself.
~ Buddha

O Rising Sun,
You are the splendor of eternal light
and the sun of justice.
O come and enlighten those who sit in darkness
and in the shadow of death.

O come, Thou Day-spring, come and cheer
our spirits by Thine advent here;
disperse the gloomy clouds of night,
and death’s dark shadows put to flight:

Rejoice! Rejoice! Immanuel
shall come to thee, O Israel.

(Advent prayer from Celtic Daily Prayer)
