Dust and broken alleluias…

A meditation from Mucky Paws …for the day we enter Jerusalem.

The story is told
in dust and broken alleluias
of the saviour Jesus moving towards Jerusalem
and a hill with a cross

Such a journey is always long
lent stretches too far sometimes
each footstep heavy with memory
each breath caught by hesitation

but on the way
we have broken bread
and poured wine
and we will bless with water

My friends
this journey will pass, the darkness and the suffering too,
but these signs will not
for they proclaim the order of God

that which will always be:
the heavens are full of the glory of God
Love can never be defeated by that which passes away
even as we find God amid dust and broken alleluias.
