Sonnets to enhance the Lectionary
Introduction to the Gospel for Easter Season
Women of Good Sense
The women have the sense to be afraid
seized by amazement at Godís Easter act,
not insulated from the resurrection fact
from the awesome emptiness where Christ was laid.
He has been raised! They marvel at the news;
a fantasy beyond the mind to cope
beyond all possibility, all hope!
These new, supreme, unconquerable truths!
The grinding wheel of sin and death is broken
In Jesus Christ the living God has spoken.
