Revival Of The Alchemist…

Hmm..reading & reminiscence can have an interesting effect on a creative mind. Diana Rose Hartmann’s plea for women to live & breathe in inner harmony – to amalgamate the saint & sinner within and become the “Whole, Wholly, Holy Whore” – reminded me of the old prayer I used to drone along to back in my Christian infancy…..

Holy, holy, holy Lord
God of Power and Might
Heaven and Earth are full of your glory
Hosanna in the highest
Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord
Hosanna in the highest

(Being of filthy & blasphemous mind, I never fail to be entertained by the penultimate line….)

Embracing both the sacred & salacious has an potent effect on the creative spirit….in honour of Ms Hartmann’s impassioned article (and in contempt of the Church), I present the following:

Invocation of the Holy Whore
(Hosanna ad Vaginus)

Whole, Wholly, Holy Whore
Goddess of Stature and Night
Heaven and Earth are full of your Glory
Hosanna ad Vaginus
Blessed is he who comes by the Grace of the Whore
Hosanna ad Vaginus
