Santa Lucia

Today was the feast of St. Lucy, who is especially revered in Sweden. Which is a fascination to me, as Protestants don't generally want to pay much attention to the saints.  I like to play this cd on her day (but not just today); beautifully performed by students in an elementary school for singing, but very professional.

When the days are cold and grey and the nights long and overcast
and summer sleeps like frozen earth
When snow has fallen brightly from a grey and cloudy sky
and everyone dresses warmly against the bitter cold
then a light reaches into every dark corner
for look, Lucia is standing among you.

  1. It's great to be back... again. I really need to stop this disappearing act. I've missed visiting you my friend. :)
