Maundy Thursday Litany

Here’s a brief litany inspired by the events of Maundy Thursday (the evening before Good Friday).  It was written by Roddy Hamilton.

Thursday Evening

the gathering of the dark
the breaking of the bread
the pouring of the wine
the telling of the story

the preparing of the lies
the beating of the heart
the making of the covenant
the turning towards the cross
the rumours of death
the whisper of night
the shimmer of grace
the snap of twigs
the flash of eyes
the moment of turning
and the kiss
