Lenten Reflections

The Crucifixion of Jesus Christ
A Divine plan
Prophesied in Scriptures
A supreme sacrifice
Unquestionable obedience to the Father in Heaven;
Inhuman sufferings
Torture untold
Excruciating pain
Ignominious death on the cross
Most precious blood-shed
Love unparalleled
Forgiving heart without limits
Humble unto death
Redemption of sinners
Soul of unsurpassed purity
Incomparable patience
Victory over death through resurrection
Mystery of death
Mankind’s sins forgiven for eternity
Heaven’s gates opened to all who repent
A spotless lamb killed most unfairly
Begotten Son in whom God the Father was well pleased
A divine tragedy with a surprising end
Scriptures fulfilled fully
Jesus Christ, Savior of the Human race!
Second person in the Holy Trinity
Basis of faith, hope and joy of every Christian
Annihilation of the forces of evil
One, true, living Omnipotent God
The Truth, Light and Way.

Praise for your eloquent reflections.This poem brings to mind what the Psalmist said many years ago, 'Weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.'A fine, sensitive offering, Dr. Celes. Warm regards, Sandra
