An Easter Meditation
by Rev Mario Schoenmaker
Were you there? Many of Christ’s followers deserted him at the crucifixion. They stood and watched from far off. Only Mary, his mother, and John, his beloved disciple, were by his side. In this meditation, set to well-known and loved Easter songs, Rev Mario asks us to come closer to the cross and stand with him, beholding the Beloved – in his agony, in his glory, in his love.

Comfort my people. Be strengthened and filled with the power from on high. Behold the one who suffered and who conquered. And rejoice that his life and power now fill this earth and every human soul who can unite with him.
This meditation is not an intellectual exercise; it is a deeply devotional experience in which Rev Mario shares his love for the crucified and risen Christ and bids us be present at the cross and the empty tomb.
