the Holy Week

On this first day of Holy Week, I marvel at the forgiveness and love Christ offers. With the cross in mind, this stanza communicates the power of his death and resurrection…

You looked with love upon me

and deep within your eyes imprinted grace;

this mercy set me free,

held in your love’s embrace,

to lift my eyes adoring to your face.

[Flame, St. John of the Cross, stanza 32]
