Editor’s note: The short intro and poem below are authored by Michael Finch.
The great cathedral of Constantinople, Hagia Sophia, has been closed to Christians as Turkey has turned it into a mosque. For almost a century it was a museum and open to all, but no longer. A devastating day for Eastern Orthodox Christians, a sad day for all Christians and for all people of faith in the world. In retreat we all fall.
Our greatness gone, faded to trumpets song.
His arms we fall in eternal time.
