Good Friday Meditation: It is finished...

You were always the watcher. 
You wanted nothing. 
Apart from Your calling to witness and to counsel,
 You owned nothing.
When others could be persuaded by bribes or threats to look away, You were beyond corruption's reach.
You craved nothing that could be promised to You,
You valued nothing that they could try to take from You,
ultimately, not even Your own life.
You saw exactly what they were and yet You did not raise a hand against them.
You were unlike anything in their playbook,
You were Jesus of Nazareth.
And when you left this world,
You detonated a chain of infinite explosions of Peace,
and Your Love remains the eternal wounding
that promises to heal all wounds.
