Gethsemane beckons

Gethsemane beckons. Golgotha. Higher still, beyond the plain— Zion. “If any follow me, help me— carry my cross. Beyond city gates— take my hand, a better city now we build. Embrace me; my path, my poverty, my people; my life; embrace the Kingdom.” – Improvisio II of Thomas Merton’s “Hagia Sophia.”
