Resurrection

It's a little late for Easter, but I wanted to scribble something down here before I take off for summer-in-Ireland round 2. Easter season is over and we are in the long season of Ordinary Time, but we do celebrate the Resurrection every Sunday, and it is always the right season for healing. After this past semester, I need to be remembering that this summer.
Return, our ritual Passover Lamb,
And heal the sacrificial corpse itself,
The very meat that feeds the pilgrims and
Declares their blood-atonement in the wealth
Of their perdition. Whisper to the deaf
Whom you'd have hear that mercy's not enough.

Hope you have a grand time in Ireland. If you find yourself in Scotland at any point, particularly in the Edinburgh area, let me know. I'll buy you a pint or a wee dram!

Aw, I'd love that; I haven't been to Scotland in 10 years, but I had loved it when I went. Unfortunately, Greek boot camp will not allow me to get very far from Cork this summer, but if you end up in Ireland for any reason let me know!
