The Holy Week

a poem by Elizabeth Padillo Olesen, Denmark

The Silent Week

Out of the noise of the outside world
the tiring demands of paid work,
the monotone routines day in and day out,
here we come again to this silent week
when Jesus was hanged and crucified.

Here we retrace the story of his life and death
Here we follow the steps out of his grave
Why does he come to share
with us our life and death?
Why does he come to bring hope
to our own deaths and hope beyond our graves?

Listen to the Whisper of your Soul
Faith, Church Life and Ministry
We Need You This Easter, Christ
