FRA (March 29 / Cabagan, Isabela, Philippines)

In Holy Week

His prayer abides
That we be gentleness of his ways
Of his hands breaking bread
Pouring wine of health and cheer

Gentleness of his silence
Of self-surrender to the Father
Wordless in Spirit that contains all
After words made pain in questions

Gentleness of his Light
Melting resistance of rock and wood
Dispelling doubts of faith
Dissolving nights of the heart

To appear in gardens of our lives
As radiance of the way it is
That we be for one another
In remembrance of him

A timely message on this Good Friday. I like this part best. It sums up everything and repeats in everyday language the second commandment. To appear in gardens of our lives As radiance of the way it is That we be for one another
