Holy Saturday I Broke The Cycle Of Evil And Death

    Holy Saturday

    I broke the cycle of evil and death

    Yes, my child, as you sit with me in my tomb,
    you experience the coldness of death,
    the emptiness left when life is poured out,
    it was a horror for me, it was not pretended,
    for I took it all on out of love,
    all the deaths of all my children throughout time,
    and still, carry that within my heart,
    for love never forgets, and is stronger than death.

    My death seems to be the end, yet in my sufferings, like in death,
    I took on all of mankind’s anxiety, fear, and pain, and yes the most terrible of all, each one’s death.
    I was betrayed, abandoned, denied by my followers, tortured and imprisoned for a night, by my enemies, yet through it all, I did not hate or seek revenge, my love swallowed up the hatred shown me, and it was found to be nothing in the face of Infinite Compassion.

    So on the cross, I broke the cycle of evil and death, I did not participate in its dance of absurdity but only loved, and in the end,I forgave all because I see that humans, all of them, truly do not know what they are doing, that they do not know their left hand from their right, hence my compassion for the endless pain they cause, to themselves, and others, and yes to myself.

    Yes, the tomb is cold, empty, the silence leading to despair,
    yet in my saying “yes” to my Fathers will, all will be swallowed up in victory, though for a time each must walk their path, until the end.—Br.MD
