Sonnets to enhance the Lectionary
Introduction to the Gospel for Easter Season
Eternal Wounds Luke 24:44-53
So few His words, so short His earthly life,
so failed His enterprise, His end disgraced
but in that corner of our global space
He conquered, on a cross, our death and strife.
At first obscure, that victory changed the world,
removed all obstacles to human growth,
bequeathed repentance and forgiveness, both;
and over all that is, Godís flag unfurled.
The Christ, no longer bound by time and space
everywhere, displays His wounds of love and grace.
[Year B - Ascension]
