"It is finished." 

John 19:30

complete, made perfect, accomplished ended

The night, it is deserted
from the mountains to the sea.
But I, the one who rocks you,
I am not alone!
The sky, it is deserted
for the moon falls to the sea.
But I, the one who holds you,
I am not alone !
The world, it is deserted.
All flesh is sad you see.
But I, the one who hugs you,
I am not alone!

Gabriela Mistral


to reflect on...

"Christ has no body now but yours. 
No hands, 
no feet on earth but yours. 
Yours are the eyes through which 
he looks compassion on this world. 
Yours are the feet with which 
he walks to do good. 
Yours are the hands through which 
he blesses all the world. 
Yours are the hands, 
yours are the feet, 
yours are the eyes, 
you are his body. 
Christ has no body now on earth but yours."

Teresa of Avila

to read...

"... Made himself nothing,
taking the very nature of a servant,
being made in human likeness.
And being found in appearance as a man,
he humbled himself and became obedient to death -- even death on a cross!
Therefore God exalted him to the highest place
and gave him the name that is above every name,
that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father."

(Philippians 2:7-11)
