For Palm Sunday and Holy Week: Reflections from T.S. Eliot


7 April 2017

From “Ash Wednesday”:



“…Suffer us not to mock ourselves with falsehood

Teach us to care and not to care

Teach us to sit still

Even among these rocks,

Our peace in His will

And even among these rocks

Sister, mother

And spirit of the river, spirit of the sea,

Suffer me not to be separated……And let my cry come unto Thee.”


From “Journey of the Magi”:



“…All this was a long time ago, I remember,

And I would do it again, but set down

This set down

This: were we led all that way for

Birth or Death? There was a Birth, certainly,

We had evidence and no doubt. I had seen birth and death,

I should be glad of another death.”

My very best wishes for the Easter season.

I will be away from my computer for a few days and expect to return at the end of April.
