  1. “MARY FROM MAGDALA” BY SOFIA KIOROGLOU

    On the Western side of the Sea of Galilee
    between Tiberias and Capernaum
    the apostle of the apostles was born.

    O holy myrrh-bearer, Mary from Magdala
    the red egg in your hand Tiberius Caesar’s debacle
    would be of “Speak now or Forever rest in Peace”

    Specially dedicated to your wonderful page. Christ is Risen.

    * The poem is based on the Paschal eggs’ tradition. During a dinner with the emperor Tiberius Caesar, Mary Magdalene was speaking about Christ’s Resurrection. Caesar scoffed at her, saying that a man could rise from the dead no more than the egg in her hand could turn red. Immediately, the egg turned red. Because of this, icons of Mary Magdalene sometimes depict her holding a red egg. Also, this is believed to be an explanation for dyeing eggs red at Pascha.

  3. “With spices and precious
    Balm, we arrayed Him ;
    Faithful and gracious.
    We tenderly laid Him :
    Linen to bind Him
    Cleanlily wound we:
    Ah ! when we would find Him
    Christ no more found we…”

    “Has He, victoriously,
    Burst from the vaulted
    Grave, and ail-gloriously
    Now sits exalted ?
    Is He, in glow of birth,
    Rapture creative near ?
    Ah ! to the woe of earth
    Still are we native here.
    We, His aspiring
    Followers, Him we miss ;
    Weeping, desiring.
    Master, Thy bliss…”
