Within the context of The Spiritual Exercises of St Ignatius

Contemporary themes
continue to dominate
the Easter Octave.
Our humanity
is so obvious in the disciples
at this time.
There has been a revolution in Jerusalem.
They are incapable
of dealing with it.
Unable to let go and
clear the space inside,
of frenetic fear and anxiety.
Such grief and sadness overwhelms.
How many times now’
has Jesus had to rebuke His disciples
for their lack of faith and doubt?
As human being
our behaviour is not dissimilar.
We follow a similar pathway
making life difficult for ourselves-
so tight is our grip on negativity.
Surface experiences create a delusion!
We hanker for release – freedom.
Created for a purpose
We sing our song of praise-
