“Words are gold, split and shared as coinage, small pebbles, emblems offered back and forth-given, received; given, received-expanding the vocabulary of the soul”
Michael O'Brien, The Island of the World

“To presume that we have received in advance a precise decryption of the symbolic prophecies in the book of Revelation—a route map or survivalist manual, as it were—is to weaken our faculty of discernment and our openness to the guidance of the Holy Spirit and the angels. This weakness can lead us to the tyranny of unholy fears on one hand or to self-reliance on the other, and both reactions will bring about increased vulnerability to the adversary’s deceptions.”
Michael O'Brien, Elijah in Jerusalem

“power had trampled his weary, badly-worn face. The Elignon’s voice burrowed into the holy man’s mind. “Welcome home, Prime Guardian.”
Michael O'Brien, Prime Guardian of the Dead
