triduum

Linking to Frank Tassone’s haiku challenge…

 

maundy thursday meal

passover lamb serves supper

taste body and blood

 

good friday trial

soldiers nail God to wood beams

love’s great sacrifice

 

silent saturday

women weep while Jesus sleeps

he will rise again!

 

Inri

1510 fragment – Matthias Grunewald, Netherlands

INRI stems from the Latin phrase ‘Iesus Nazarenus Rex Iudaeorum‘ meaning ‘Jesus of Nazareth, King of the Jews’. This was the notice Pontius Pilate nailed to the cross.

 

what wondrous love!

 

greek word “agape”

God’s unconditional love

reaches for rebels

 

he humbly disrobed

to wash Judas’ dirty feet

king assumed servant role

 

he lay down own life

to pay ransom for captives

sweat pressed in garden

 

Jesus’ sacrifice

blood shed on altar for sin

perfect Lamb of God

 

remembering him

my first love, true love, best love

sing with gratitude

advent reading (2)

 

Light a candle on this 2nd Sunday of Advent

We watch with eyes wide open.

What does a shepherd know of Love?

Sacrifice offered

Blood poured out like water

All:  Yes, Christ is our Advent of LOVE!
