These thought-provoking, mystical poems are written as if by a fictional Congregation of Women living on the banks of the Grand River in Cambridge, Ontario. Led by Mother Scarlett, the group’s feminist style of worship invokes many deities and spiritual forces including Christ, the Goddess, and St. Lucia, whose motto “ex tenebris lux” provides the title of the collection. Lucy, which means “light”, is the patron saint of the blind. The Congregation prays for a variety of spiritual blessings in order to draw on the powers of light to battle forces of darkness.
