winter solstice prayer
In the heart of the Father, resides the eternal Peace.
In the heart of the Mother, resides the wisdom of Peace.
In the heart of the Earth, resides the manifestation of Peace.
In the heart of each human being resides the potential of Peace:
that is held by the Father, the Mother, and the Earth.
As we pass through this shortest day of the year
let us be reminded of the Christed Light
seeking its most inward point within
until the changing of the celestial cycle.
In the changing of the cycle as the days begin to grow longer,
may our Light of Peace shine into the world
so it illumines the hopeless hearts,
the despair, the misery, and the suffering
with the radiance of God's Most Holy Light
birthing anew in the human experience this Holy Season.
