Lent 2022: Mary's Boy by Barbara Robinson



 

“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?’”


-Mark 14:12

Mary's Boy

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.


—Langston Hughes

Prayer

Heavenly Father, let us also give thanks to Mother Mary for her sacrifice. Amen
