crucifix"Indeed, I promise you,
today you will be with me in paradise."

Lord Jesus
Those you loved
wished to crush all hope
from you
leaving you hanging
between despair and desolation.
And yet
it is hope that you offered
to the one crucified beside you.


'Come, you who are blessed by my Father. Inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.
For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, a stranger and you welcomed me,
naked and you clothed me, ill and you cared for me,
in prison and you visited me.'
Matthew 25: 34-36

"Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom"
your kingdom of peace amid the storms
of life beyond all deaths.
Remember me Jesus
and give me a resurrection hope
a hope beyond all hope
so that I may share it with those
who are filled with despair.
