Vision of Confluence

Ambrose Andreano

As it was foretold of old,
Behold,

The birth of the one with eyes like the sun.
Causing warmth for some;
Causing others to run.

Born of a virgin,
Miracles ensue.
The fleece is dry,
Yet there is dew.

Sheep of the right,
Bask in the light,
Shining within,
No knowledge of night.

Goats of the left,
Burn in the light,
Shining without,
No knowledge of right.

Buried at birth,
Foreshadowing seed,
Foreknowing the sorrow;
Extent of the bleed.

Word placed in a manger
That we may feed,
To conquer sin,
And mend the need.

Inquiry
The Five Types of Visibility
There are, as I see it, multiple distinctions in the “visibility” of human persons.

Mysticism
The Furnace of God
Hellfire should not in every sense be thought of as being below us, for no man can ascend to heaven without first going, in some sense, through hell.

Mysticism
On the Lion and the Lamb
The mystical theology of the text is to “hear” the roar of a lion, only to “turn and see” a slain lamb as the source.
Ambrose Andreano
