Thinking of Christ’s gift of freedom to us at Easter

A day of true liberation, when Christ breaks the shackles of death,
He makes a show of the grave, the tomb its champion met.
On such a blessed day like this, my heart with thoughts are filled,
of the freedom his death has wrought, and yet his own suffer a lot.

 

From the cry of the innocent child in Syria, to the sorrow of the abducted students in Nigeria.
From the cries of war and hate in Afghanistan, to the bombs and pace of hate in Pakistan.

 

The peace of the Easter story and its conquest of Satan’s gory, cannot but make you sorry for such a pressing worry.
Yet the people’s leaders for instance in Nigeria continues a-politicking,
their populace subjected to diverse ransacking, they trade blames, insulting and barking.

 

Today it is arms and legs that are flying, tomorrow scores of girls that are sighing.
Their only fault: they belong to Nigeria, a state where the senseless rule the wise, and the clueless the savvy.

 

The question is: when shall the lesson of Easter be taken to its root?
Who shall stand up for the people against the cheats, hooligans and the crooks?
60 million youths in the country have languished, now well close to 60 years,
Shall they continue to wait for Christ who has done his part and awaits theirs?

 

Happy Easter, but it’s ‘a sorry’ for about a 100 girls,
They are in slavery in their country, for our national lack of guts.

    Mi ha colpito il modo in cui hai parlato della risurrezione, come di una lezione… quando il mondo riuscirà ad impararla?
    Penso che in questo modo di vedere le cose c’è molta tristezza.
    Stare davanti al crocifisso e contemplare, sopportandolo, il dolore innocente e l’abominio della tortura fisica, della derisione, dell’uccisione: solo pochi sono riusciti a farlo. Solo quelli che amavano Gesù. E certamente solo quelli che lui amava. Solo a loro la luce della sua risurrezione è arrivata folgorante per illuminargli lo sguardo ed infiammare il cuore, la mente e la lingua.
    Anche oggi solo pochi riescono a farlo. Ma per chi riesce a stare lì a guardare la violenza, senza impazzire, è chiaro che la risurrezione di Gesù non è ciò che toglie la morte e il dolore. La risurrezione di Gesù è ciò che attraversa la morte e il dolore di ogni sua creatura, che li penetra e li visita, e li conduce ad un nuovo cielo e una nuova terra.
