December 10 Advent Window, The Vicarage

December 10, 2009

“Nox atra…vox clara”

The Vicarage, 33 Park Vista, SE10 9LZ

‘Vox Clara’ is the 6th century Latin hymn from which comes the line ‘Cast away the dreams of darkness’ (In Fr Caswell’s 17th century translation).  The window uses simple weather symbols to represent the movement from darkness into light.  In the symbol of the sun, the ‘bright voice’  emerges from the ‘nox atra’ – the black night – of storm and tempest, calling us to hope and joy.
