Meditation/Poem: Suffering was anathema

Suffering was anathema,
no Messiah died.
To grasp what is mystical
requires a letting go.
A letting go of all things.
For the mysterious,
the magical,
the mystical,
that we label God,
is so utterly other
that the disciples flew from it,
betrayed and denied
the one human being
that mirrored
and embodied this other.


Andrew Pratt (born 1948)
