Haven’t you heard?
Inspired by Zephaniah 3 : 17 “The Lord God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save; He will rejoice over you with gladness; He will quiet you by His love; He will exult over you with loud singing.”

Jesus’ Triumphal Entry
Inspired by Mark 11 : 1 - 10. Written from the donkey’s point of view. In my poem, I highlight the mixed emotions I imagine Jesus must have felt, seeing He knew what was awaiting Him in the coming Passion week.

Light of the world
Inspired by John 8 : 12 Again Jesus spoke to them, saying:”I Am the Light of the world; whoever follows Me will not walk in darkness but will have the light of life.”

To be like Him…
Inspired by John 13 : 5 - 17 and Philippians 2 : 6 - 7

The Resurrection and the Life
Inspired by John 11 : 25 - 26

The raising of Lazarus
Inspired by John 11 : 35 - 45

I pray for…
A personal prayer poem

Seventy times seven
Inspired by Matthew 18 : 21 - 22 Then came Peter to Him, and said: “Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? Until seven times?” Jesus said to him: “ I say not to you, until seven times; but until seventy times seven.”

In every situation…
Inspired by 1 Timothy 6 : 6 - 10 and Philippians 4 : 11 - 13
