Schroy: Lord, forgive

Friday, November 10, 2017
    Feast of Leo the Great, Bishop of Rome, 461
    At this, she turned around and saw Jesus standing there, but she did not realize that it was Jesus.
    “Woman,” he said, “why are you crying? Who is it you are looking for?”
    Thinking he was the gardener, she said, “Sir, if you have carried him away, tell me where you have put him, and I will get him.”
    Jesus said to her, “Mary.”
    She turned toward him and cried out in Aramaic, “Rabboni!” (which means Teacher).
    —John 20:14-16 (NIV)
Lord, forgive—
That I have dwelt too long on Golgotha,
My wracked eyes fixed
On Thy poor, tortured human form upon the cross,
And have not seen
The lilies in Thy dawn-sweet garden bend
To anoint Thy risen feet; nor known the ways
Thy radiant spirit walks abroad with men.
    ... Pauline Schroy, in Upper Room Bulletin, v. XVII, Upper Room Bible Class, 1931, p. 188 (see the book)
    See also John 20:14-16; Mark 16:12; Luke 24:16-17; John 21:4
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I long to be at Your feet.
