Shining Eagle is Released

Shining Eagle is Released by Fr. Bob Gilroy, SJ

Artist's Narrative:

A door swings to one side of a brick dungeon
with bars on the window of the side wall.
A trapdoor in cobblestones opens
to release an eagle shadowed in light and incense.

Great Spirit and all unseen, this day we pray and ask You for guidance,
humbly we ask You to help us and fellow men to have recourse to peaceful
ways of life, because of uncontrolled deceitfulness by human- kind. Help
us all to love, not hate one another.

We ask you to be seen in an image of Love and Peace. Let us be seen in
beauty, the colors of the rainbow. We respect our Mother, the planet,
with our loving care, for from Her breast we receive our nourishment.

Let us not listen to the voices of the two-hearted, the destroyers of mind,
the haters and self-made leaders, whose lusts for power and wealth will
lead us into confusion and darkness.

Seek visions always of world beauty, not violence nor battlefields.

It is our duty to pray always for harmony between man and earth, so that
the earth will bloom once more. Let us show our emblem of love and goodwill
for all life and land.

We pray the Great Spirit that one day our Mother Earth will be purified
into a healthy peaceful one. Let us sing for strength of wisdom with all
nations for the good of all people. Our hope is not yet lost, purification
must be to restore the health of our Mother Earth for lasting peace and
