Prince of Pax

Marble shallowly carved; an angel weeping holding up the forehead of Christ’s body with his right and chest
Author’s photo of Christ Supported by Angel. Marble relief in the style of Donatello 1520–40, Italy. Victoria and Albert Museum London UK

Cherished in a circlet of olive; spurned laurels and thorns.

A branch pierced His ribbed kite into crushing breathlessness.

A sparrow* angel cradles the head of the childless Son suffocated in the line of duty;

countless counts of compassion from time immemorial.

Not broken for an instant of propitiation;

because the perpetual vow of atonement dawned with the cosmos.

Not broken as an exemplar of martyrdom; Love asks not for sacrificial blood, not even sheep.

Broken senselessly; broken unconscionably.

Broken into fragments of forgiveness put together in redemption.

Broken for lukewarm hands to a fault of parted water.**

Broken as a severed ear is returned to its nest.

Broken as a pardoned traitor hangs on a silver tree.

What more can be heard of grace?

Only but from the entire human race.

*Matt:10; 29 “Are not two sparrows sold for a cent? And yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father.”

**Pontius Pilate washed his hands of responsibility, reminiscent of Moses parting the Red Sea.

The Beloved;

Inviolably, vanquished violence.

We, a scaffold of sinew, sigh and stone,

Witness His promises pierce the side of death.

A seamless shroud frees a seamless soul

To cross the cosmos for us the merciless,

Turning back the darkness, birth by birth,

Love is His subpoena home.
