the good thief

Holy Week Survival Strategy



living holy week…accepting the good thief with the bad.

forgiving others, for they know not what they do,

remaining silent while others may mock you;

while placing one foot, then the other, on the way of the  cross.

weeping with the women , wiping the brow, and willingly coming out from the shadows (of the crowd) to carry, if only for a little while, a piece of the cross…nay, though it be but a sliver.

mary, strengthen us, by the heel of your foot.
