Way of the Cross - 12. Jesus dies on the cross



12.       Jesus dies on the cross






Jesus, the man

though Son of God,

nears his end.

Darkened clouds come storming in,

thunder and lightning lash out -

how can this be?

This is the Creator they nailed to the tree.

How can God ................?

How can humanity ..................?

How can Jesus still pray:

‘Father forgive them, they do not know what they are doing’

These words spoken

a gift flowing through all time

Offering then and always

forgiveness, healing, unity and wholeness,

today and every conceivable moment

‘It is accomplished

Into your hands I commend my spirit’.

A profound stillness pervades.


Jesus whispers with deep affection:

‘into your hands I commend myself’,

I offer you myself, I am yours.

Do I reject.  Do I embrace?
