Stations of the Cross – 3rd Station

III Jesus falls the first time

He made the stones that pave the roads of Zion

And well he knows the path we make him tread

He met the devil as a roaring lion

And still refused to turn these stones to bread,

Choosing instead, as Love will always choose,

This darker path into the heart of pain.

And now he falls upon the stones that bruise

The flesh, that break and scrape the tender skin.

He and the earth he made were never closer,

Divinity and dust come face to face.

We flinch back from his via dolorosa,

He sets his face like flint and takes our place,

Staggers beneath the black weight of us all.

And falls with us that he might break our fall.

    1. In Biblie nu se mentioneaza nici ca Isus a folosit toaleta. Chiar credeti ca ar trebui sa scrie totul in Biblie? Dacaar fi asa, vorba lui Ioan, n-ar incape cartile in toate=a lumea aceasta.
