Sonnets to enhance the Lectionary
Introduction to the Gospel for Easter Season
There are clues to Godís protection even here;
You live for one thing! Safely through the night!
Godís greatest remedies are hid from sight,
horrendous evils break Godís heart. In tears
another mighty act by God is writ
when the second curtain lifts
and sorrow is erased by gifts
and at Godís groaning table sufferers sit.
Press you on! Remembíring how God cares;
you, of all good and truth - the heirs.
[Year B - Seventh Sunday of Easter]
