Burial Chant

Where is the crowd and its clamor?
Where is lust for the world?
Where is the ephemeral dream?
All is dust, all ashes, all shadow.

Canon of the Pasch

by Peter Oresick 04-01-1982

Resurrection Day:
how it illumines the people!
The Pasch is the Passover of the Lord
from death to life,
from earth to the kingdom.

Central American Martyrs, North American Martyrs

by Peter Oresick 09-01-1980

They are pricks, pickets

thick on the fence

girdling the Americas.
