Musings on the Feast of the Exaltation of the Cross!

 

 In darkness

You were conceived

In Mary's womb.

For thirty years

In darkness

You walked--

One among us.

 

At 3 o'clock

Your dying

On the cross

Darkened earth.

Darker still

Your rising--

Very early

On the first day

Of the week,

Since none

Witnessed it.

 

 

 

  

You: Light from Light,

Made yourself dark

With a Light

Darkness could

Never hold.

Now Eternal Word of God,

More brilliant than the sun,

You shine! Amazingly,

We who walk in darkness

Reflect your Light!
