A Holy Week Without the Liturgy

Day 10. I  wasn’t going to post this but have not been able to write anything better for Frank’s prompt at DVerse about seven-line poems. 


The virus isolation breaks my heart,

Especially with no Eucharist received

Nor even seen in person — though apart

And with so many others, greatly grieved,

Faith lives in hope — she’s blessed who has believed.

I live-stream watching Mass and Tenebrae, *

Lamenting that they’ve taken Him away.

 

*Tenebrae is a liturgical service during Holy Week. If you want to know more, click here.

  1. I feel this! It is heartbreaking to not be able to celebrate Easter with the Eucharist and family and friends. And Palm Sunday without palms! The live-streamed mass are just not the same. This has been a true Lenten Season. Hoping this Easter bring you blessings!
