Paschal Credo

Between hosannas of earth and glories of heaven
Above shattered power of Sanhedrin and State
Above tribal loves and laws of the heart
So it is: his cross our cross lifted high/
Shared bread and wine/ body and blood/
Life and death/ God Man Woman in elevation
So it is: through palm fronds and olive branches
Via dolorosa memorial parks and paschal fiestas
From little Bethlehem to new Jerusalem
Genesis to Apocalypse of our lives redeemed
Mystery of Light to Light Face to Face
At once joyful sorrowful lightful glorious
So it is: because of him because of us
All Life is risen, good and triumphant all the way
Francisco R. Albano
