Easter Greetings

Janko Orač, 14th Station of the Cross: Jesus is laid in the tomb, acrylic on canvas, 100×70 cm, 2009

He is laid in a tomb.
The sign of a cross appears
from the stone tomb,
from his anointed body,
It enters into the bosom of life.
As a sign of birth,
as a sign of death,
as a sign of suffering. Suffering.
As a sign of joy.
And a sign of Love.
So inconceivable. Endless.
Incomprehensible. Eternal love.
Will you, the Spirit of God,
eradicate the evil
rooted in our flesh?

(14th Station of the Cross, Dane Zajc)

The suffering and pain of today’s world are also filled with the joy of resurrection. May the celebration of Easter be a source of abundant hope that love is stronger than hatred, forgiveness better than revenge and life more powerful than death.
We wish you a happy Easter!
