The Hierophant – Card 05 – Tarot
So many people lost along so many trails,
and all of them disorganized. It tears my heart
to watch their halting progress on their lonely quests.
I’ve built a house where mystery has dropped its mask.
No longer must men ask in vain; here God prevails.
I’ve carved His thoughts quite clearly on the holy stone.
Power moves throughout this place, in silk and flame,
in many voices joined in song, in filtered light
stained gold by glass, in shadows cast by painted saints.
Beyond these sturdy, sacred walls lies wilderness
and many fools have fallen there. Come, my children,
search no more. God is bound and waiting for your prayers.
