The Pilgrimage, Book II: Part 19 / Phillip Neal Tippin

The contemplation of You
In Action
Would look like obedience.

Our consolation:
It is better to imagine home
Than estrangement
Which is fear.

The law and the prophets
Discussed with Him His departure,
Which He accomplished.
   (Transfiguration Sunday)

The ease of severance
The difficulty of temperance

The condescension of Christ to become
The circumcision of the world.
