Using imagery from fields as far apart as the Gospels, classic mythology, and modern astrophysics, in his book The Mystic Mountain, Dunstan Massey explores what some might call the chimerical hope of a risen life. Nevertheless, one is allowed to ask, will the Mourner, bereaved by the sudden death of Miriam, his wife, and his young son Jonathan, ever know consolation for their loss, or even see them again?
In his desolation edging on despair, the Mourner is accompanied by three mysterious voices. He asks them at the sill of the grave, “Shall they rise, these dead?”
As if in reply, the consolers lead him on a long visual search for the transcendent answer: will it be here, where death’s inevitability and finality have shattered his hopes? Or, could it be beyond death? The cry, the craving of the human heart, will never rest, save in a deathless state of infinite joy. We strive for it here, but find it not. Only the Infinite One who chose to die for love can give it when he calls us—so come as I call thee, my sister and brother and mother, unto me.
