Happy Easter! The Death of Death
Happy Easter to You!!
I have received so many grateful comments for the poems shared here during the Season of Lent. Easter is such a glorious season. So it would be a shame to stop the poetry now! The site, Education for Justice, has such a treasure trove of resources, so I go to it again for poems that bring us Hope during this Easter Season!
Today’s Lenten poem from Education for Justice is by Scott Cairns. Please continue to enjoy!
The Death of DeathBy Scott CairnsPut fear aside. Nowthat He has enteredinto death on our behalf,all who liveno longer dieas men once died.That ephemeral occasionhas met its utter end.As seeds cast to the earth, wewill not perish,but like those seedsshall rise again—the shroudof death itself having beenburst to tattersby love’s immensity.Love’s Immensity: Mystics on the Endless Life, by Scott Cairns.
