Easter V

By Chaplain Mike

Today’s Gospel: John 14:1-14

when in the dimness of an upper room
my troubled heart fears an ending
an abandoning, a bereaving i cannot bear
the world that i have known changing
the one whom i have followed departing
the path that i have walked ending
my hope, so solid, dissipating
the friends with whom i’ve traveled falling
the words in which i’ve trusted failing
my confidence flagging
my concentration lagging
i hear you speak but cannot hear

i am sure that we will leave this place
singing a hymn
but in the garden i will sleep
for fear of what night will bring.

  1. Tim Becker says

    What nice words of grace to the apostles who slept who’ve received nothing but condemnation from generations of Christians.

  2. I have greatly enjoyed these Easter reflections. And I love the Icon of the Lord’s Supper with the round table.
