The Poetry of Easter April 16, 2017 Our friend Scott Eagan speaks the poetry of life restored! In this holiest of seasons, may your hearts speak "the most beautiful word ever uttered in any language" to one another.Happy Easter, friends! SUNDAYVery earlyon the first day of the weekwhen the sun had just risen…in the darkness of a new tomb hewn out of rocka naked man steps out of his burial linenthe Son of Man clothed in Lightmarked with Passion and places his foot upon the stony earth.The Lamb who had been slain and shorn and silencedJesus the Christ arises, returning from death robed in glory.He strides through the rolled-away-stone openingstartling the disbelieverswiping away every Mary’s tearsencouraging all the disciplesand opening the radiant Flower of everlasting Life.He greets those who waitand those who had run awaywith the most beautiful wordever uttered in any language – Shalom Peace.He is Risen. Alleluia! — Scott Eagan, April 16, 2017 Lithograph of the Risen Christ by Benton Spruance. Courtesy Sacred Art Pilgrim.
