Love, the Giver of life
Joy, the Bearer of light
Peace, the Prince of nobility
Patience, the Protector of faith
Kindness, the Deliverer of humanity
Goodness, the Messenger of gold
Faithfulness, the Knight of salvation
Gentleness, the Healer of old
Self-control, the Defender of the soul

A golden light
Caressing stately, gilded domes.
They reached towards the sky;
the symbols of Christ the Saviour pointing heavenwards.
Victorious, a promise made – a light even in the darkness slowly falling.
A moment – just, standing still.
A moment, of unexplainable serenity and comfort in the knowledge of the time to come.
