Tore open the sky: Reflection for Easter


Thou, mightiest lion, tore open the sky,
descending to the Virgin’s vestibule,
and destroyed death,
building life in the Golden City,
give us fellowship in that city
and rest with Thee.

(Hildegard of Bingen, transl. Thomas Cahill, Mysteries of the Middle Ages, p. 66.)
