“On the first day of the Festival of Unleavened Bread, when the Passover lamb is sacrificed, Jesus’ disciples asked him, ‘Where do you want us to go to prepare the Passover meal for you?’”
April 14, 2022
It was in the Spring.
The Passover had come.
There was feasting in the streets and joy.
But an awful thing
Happened in the Spring—
Men who knew not what they did
Killed Mary’s Boy.
He was Mary’s son,
And the Son of God was He—
Sent to bring the whole world joy.
There were some who could not hear,
And some were filled with fear—
So they built a cross
For Mary’s Boy.
To His Twelve Disciples
He gave them of His Bread.
He gave them to drink of His wine.
This is my blood, He said.
My Cross for you
Will be a sign.
Heavenly Father, let us also give thanks to Mother Mary for her sacrifice. Amen
