From Cross to Empty Tomb

Praying Around The Cross – St Celsus’ Church, Kilkelly

Who will
roll the stone away
they wondered
as they wandered
to the empty tomb.

Borrowed!
like so many other rooms;
the Bethlehem stable
the Upper Room
Martha and Mary’s kitchen
where great things happened

welcome offered
food prepared and shared
lessons in listening
borrowed yes, but always
willing to repay

Repay!
every act of kindness
every word of encouragement
every step taken
every difference made

Made …..
the tomb was made by man
He was made of God.

The stone was rolled away.
He is risen.
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!
