“I Will Draw All”…

“Look at this cross,

So much bigger than the man whose body will be stretched to fit it.

So much bigger than the height of the man who will be lifted up above the earth on it and who,

being lifted up, will draw all peoples to himself.

Christ receives it with joy because he knows that this is the dead weight that must have crushed humankind had he not lifted it from their backs.

This is the dead wood which at his touch is transformed to a living tree.

 At His touch, the hewn tree takes root again, and the roots thrust down into the earth, and the tree breaks into flower.”

Caryll Houselander (+1954) British poet and spiritual teacher

“And when I am lifted up from the earth, I will draw everyone to myself” John 12:32

  1. Oh this is wonderful–I feel both hushed and joyful, not sure if I should be quiet or jump up and down. Jesus, Jesus–almost EASTER! Thank you–and God bless you abundantly today, and always. love, sis Caddo

  2. “At His touch, the hewn tree takes root again, and the roots thrust down into the earth, and the tree breaks into flower” — and that’s worth shouting about!
