When the Graft is Pierced by Nails

John 15:5-11

Grace in us Revealed to us

For the hour in which we have no vision save a dying Jesus grafted to a dead tree and no answer to the 'Why forsaken?' other than the silence of dark-in-the-daytime heavens — for that hour we have the spoken assurance of both the Vine's branches' grafting and the saint's prayers' answer and our joy is full enough (and overflowing) for us to call that Friday, 'Good.'
