Reflection; 3rd Week of Lent

His sorrows are immense; they reach beyond
The mind of man to deep within Divine
Realities. God takes the sinner's bond
Upon Himself -offers His Son, the fine
Of man's eternal bliss. What cold, hard hearts
Who pass Him by, unnoticed on the road
To Calvary! Surely their conscience smarts
Who still insist in sin! But no! They goad
Each others' souls to greater depths. Meantime
His tears fall unavailing on the the ground
Of Olivet. One other heart, sublime
In its pure love, one with His pain, is found:
His Mother, to whose hurt the sea's abyss
Is but a raindrop -one, small, ocean's kiss.
