SoL10c: Goldmine – Fran Brady

Goldmine – Fran Brady


three years was all he had

to reveal the infinite ages of God

walking distance was all he had

to cover light years of knowledge and truth

simple, illiterate folk

to teach the complexity of His plan

arrogant, hostile scholars

to teach the simplicity of his love


when they nailed him to the cross

did he hang there, wondering:

is it enough? It is finished,

but have they really grasped it?

was that when he knew that

revelation could not end?


Christianity is not a finished product

to be analysed, preserved and taught

it is a living language always evolving

as modern Italian is to classical Latin,

thus our living faith to old texts

the goldmine goes on giving
