I OPUS DEI

(a layman's winter mockup, wherein moreover
the Offices are not within one day said
but thro' their hours at intervals
over many weeks--such being the World)


Lord, have mercy on my son: for he is lunatick,
and sore vexed: ofttimes he falleth into
the fire, and oft into the water.

And he did evil, because he prepared not
his heart to seek the Lord.

many smiles.
