The Holy Week

This Holy Week will be celebrated in all churches all over the world. On Maundy Thursday we commemorate the last supper Jesus took with his dicipels. On Good Friday I always listen to the St Matthew Passion by J.S. Bach.
I found this poem which I translated from the Dutch:

He lives!

He didn't want to be a Protestant,
a Roman Catholic or Salvation Army,
A socialist or a liberal.

He didn't build frontiers,
nor did he create nations,
empires or republics.

He didn't believe in gods.

He was a man.
He loved.
He was full of God.

He lives among us.
