In olive grove...

Jesus Christ

To your Olive Grove we will come again my Lord, to face you with arrogance and pompousness....with selfishness and hatred as we humans are known to do...since the beginning of time...

We will come to your Olive Grove to betray you for one more time

As we humans are known to do...

We will demand with all our might that you be arrested, put to death in order to forget you....

As we humans are known to do...

We are not convinced by your miracles, your Love, your incredible humiliation...

We are not convinced by your Birth and Resurrection...

YOU, the Eternal God who accepted to inhabit our perishable body that you created...

YOU, the Eternal God who accepted to be sacrificed through the most diminishing way and guide us to salvation and Heaven that you created...

In order to reconnect us with eternal life and infinite love...

At your Olive Grove my Lord, we will all be there again, in order to become spectators of your tribulations, in order to deny you because of our fear of dying, in order to confess to your persecutors that you don't know you, in order to helplessly witness your death by crucifixion

...spectators then...spectators today...

as we humans are known to be...

At your Olive Grove, the last place you knelt and prayed for us, your creations, for us the deniers, the enemies, the doubters, for us who follow not your path but our path, our own EGO...

At your Olive Garden my Lord, they will also be there, the ones who will raise the knife, in order to stop the arrest, the doubt, the mistake...in order to cut down the enemy's ear

...but there it is my God, your revelation, there it is, your endless mercy and your infinite Love...

...with one act, with a few words you will show again your incalculable Love and endless Mercy...

you will correct the mistake of violence...

At your olive Grove my Lord we will face again your painful glance through which you gaze at us and your words will reverberate once again in the darkness "Knife you give, knife you will receive..."

Don't kill the human, don't wound him, don't destroy the Creation and the creatures...

And we, with eyes full of agony, query, doubt and hatred, will look at you and wonder how much more INFINITE your Love really is...how big and endless your greatness really is my Lord...

At your Olive Grove, barking dogs will be heard once again, dust will be raised once again from the marching soldiers who will take you away from us to guide you to the place you want to go...and know...

The hateful cheers from the crowd will be heard once again shouting "Quickly, quickly, crucify him!"...

As we humans are known to do...

But YOU my God will fill up the universe with your infinite Love and Endless Mercy...

You will forgive our selfishness and our wickedness...and you will offer your Divine body in order to resurrect our own corporeal body and guide it to imperishability and eternity...

My Lord Jesus Christ...Eternal, Almighty, Benevolent God...

Let us overcome all the egoism, cowardness, fear and indifference that don't allow us to act as we are meant to do...

Allow us, help us to be guided with you to your crucifixion and crucify with you, our own EGO, our own passions, our own hatred, our own mischief, our own wickedness and be raised with you, in order to resurrect love, understanding, goodness and hope...

...to confess along with the words of Apostle Thomas:

"You are my Lord and God!

I believe and love you with all my being, with all my heart, with all my mind..."

In order to make True all these things we humans are not known to do...

And in order to stay with You forever in the Olive Grove...of eternal life and Your endless mercy.
