Jesus, today you resurrected

Jesus, nothing can stop you

From loving us all, not even death.

Today, many years ago, you resurrected

Defying all pains, all tortures, humiliations and even death.

You do not have to prove to the world

That you are omnipotent. omnipresent and omniscient.

We know it, we see it and we feel it in our hearts

And in our souls wherever we are and whosoever we are,

Rich or poor, black or white, famous or simple, learned or not.

Jesus, in you we find a friend, a guide and a master

Who holds our hands when we go astray

And brings us back to the right path,

The path that you tread in spite of all the hurdles,

The obstacles and the pot-boiling twists.

Original and daring, dauntless and fathomless,

You are in yourself a school and we, the learners.

You showed to us the road to fearlessness,

With uncompromising faithfulness to mankind,

Thereby bringing a transformation powerful enough

To create spiritual awakening that transcends the mundane.

You showed to us right livelihood

That brings the joys of life

And you taught us that forgiving is divine.

Today, when I thought of how you washed

The lovely feet of your disciples,

Tears flowed down my cheeks for wisdom

Flashed to me in the colors of the rainbow

That we never came on planet earth

To be served but to serve others.

And now Jesus, all of us are in so much pain

With the pandemic that does not want

To release its grip from our frail bodies.

If it is a collective karma, please forgive us

And come to our world to freshen our minds

About the ways of living and solving our problems

Just like you did many many years ago.
