Beneath the Cross

The Crucified One is buried.
Women stand watching
Beneath the cross.

Your mother, your sister, your lover, your friends,
Continue to be crucified,
To be crowned with thorns.

Sorrow and loss pierce deep as a lance
Grief is a constant lashing.

But Passion Shared leads to life
To Easter bliss.

- Fr. Jim Hasse, SJ
