Allegory of the Cross of Jesus TGaddi.jpg

On this Fifth Sunday of Lent we approach the Cross of Jesus, the Tree of Life!

Finding Jesus in the temple

Teaching, there the leaders brought

Forth a woman caught in sinning:

Trapping Him was in their thoughts.

Then, instead of giving answers,

Jesus wrote upon the ground.

“Let the sinless start the stoning.”

Looking up, no one was found.

“See,” the prophet said in gladness,

“God is doing something new!

Cleansing, living waters, flowing

For us all with mercy true.”

Each of us has known the wonder

Of forgiveness, full and free

In the mercy we are given

Through the Cross, that wondrous Tree.
