Sonnets to enhance the Lectionary
Introduction to the Gospel for Easter Season
Friendship, joy and love; these are the final gifts.
When shouting and the tumult die away,
and teaching, healing, death hold not the day -
these stay: the Friend, the joy and love - our spirit lifts.
If we lacked the doctorate in learned faith
if we were not skilled in ministry,
knew not a mite of Christian history,
with but these three, nothing would be waste.
Itís easy! Self of God, your Friend,
your love and joy, no end.
[Year B - Sixth Sunday of Easter]
