As we move into the season of Lent this coming week and ponder the mysteries of our longings and fallibility, of Jesus’ willingness to be falsely accused and unjustly executed, of his final victory over darkness and death and what that means to us…I offer this piano setting of a poem I wrote based on John Donne’s Holy Sonnet 10, known for it’s opening line “Death be not proud”.

Grace and peace to you…

Lamb of God

It’s Holy Week. I’d like to share some music with you, a setting of Agnus Dei (Lamb of God) I wrote a couple of years back.

John the Baptist said, “Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world.”

Do I have the courage?

 

I cannot discover God in myself and myself in Him unless I have the courage to face myself exactly as I am, with all my limitations, and to accept others as they are, with all their limitations.

— Thomas Merton, No Man Is an Island
