The Cross: Mary Waits

On the cross

Christ’s very life is poured out

desolately upon the snarled tree,

hanging, emptying his will.

Desperate breath

is gulped in from the surrounding air.

Then final words of forgiveness

Love expresses only mercy,

reverence reigns, as a great silence follows.

The King is dead,

what now? The disciples quietly sigh, as they scurry to safety.

Mary waits, watching,

as divine eyes close,

her eyes drenched with tears remain open.

Then the lifeless body was reverently removed

from the wooden prison

that had bound sacred hands and feet.

Christ’s body, spent,

sank into her waiting arms as she wept,

her heart broken, though her hope intact.

In her heart she wondered,

like all of us ever since,

what rising from the dead meant?

      The mysteries of Jesus Christ’s Passion and of Holy Mary’s sufferings for the love of us all may fill a lifetime of meditations, as well as an eternity of blissful thankfulness in heaven.
      Thank you Father (Patrick Brennan) for your personal insight. May god bless you.
      With Jesus and Mary,
