HOLY ARE YOU | saints and sainthood

and our souls stir, hearts burning, as we feel the presence of God within us, calling, soft as a lullaby, to set us on our path towards Heaven.

THE MARCHESA :: ISABELLA D’ESTE {modern mix} | [others in the series]

For the lady that reclines in her chair – her throne – at the top of society with a cool grace. Immaculately dressed, a picture of perfection, she admires her collections of art and books all gathered around her, displaying her exquisite taste. Adored and loathed, none can rival her. Not ever. Not truly. She shines the brightest and her shadow is heavy and it cannot be easily overthrown.

LORD MY SOUL TO KEEP : melisandre | southern gothic!au |
Deep in the south they whisper about her, this strange apostolate clothed in red, in awe and fright. She lights fires to cast out the dark and when she speaks, her words sound like the word of God. Yes, they whisper about her, the red woman whose eyes turn crimson by the reflected flames. Some resist but most succumb to her and gather like little moths fluttering around a blaze.

“Red is a sinful colour – it’s the colour of the Devil!”
She does not blink at the accusation as she smooths her pale hands down her every-red skirts. Rather, she says softly, “No, red is the colour of the Lord. It is the colour of His wrath, but most importantly, His love. It is the colour of His fire.”
“The Devil has fire – not the Lord.”
Her smile never fades. “Is that so? Do you not burn with His fire? When you speak to Him, do you not spark inside? Does His love not consume you so wonderfully?” She glances around to see a few of the congregation nod. “His fire ignites the heart and soul but it does not turn it to ash. It purifies. It strips us of our sins and leaves us whole. Why do you think we burn the wicked? Fire, His fire, makes us glorious.”
“Then what of the fires in Hell?”
“Those are black flames, not red. They lick and scorch till there is nothing but cinders and soot. They torment and provide no pleasure. There is no light in Hell and the red flame is light.”
Her words have moved them. Some clutch their hearts whilst others whisper fervently to their neighbours. She still smiles but her gaze falls only upon those who still doubt her. Those that see the red, see the flames, and do not see the truth. A pity, she thinks, but they will believe. She will show them the way.
