for the Remand Centre this thursday :
And now we lay down the palm branches.
And with them we lay down
that there is another way for you to be God.
As the last echo of the final alleluia fades,
so does our hope that this journey can end
in any other way.
The week stretches ahead
Whether we walk with all faith or none
we look towards the cross,
knowing it is both the most human
and most divine
of all journeys
travel the road with courage,
and with the uneasy peace that is the gift of faith
into this holiest of weeks.
