He Is Risen From The Dead

Israel Pilgrimage--2006

Some believe
the Body of Messiah was placed
in the highly venerated
tomb located in the Church
of the Holy Sepulcher

Some believe
He was buried
in a pastoral place
known as the Garden Tomb

The important thing is—
He died. He rose.
He’ll come again.

The important thing is
as a placard proclaims
at the entrance
to the Garden Tomb:

He is not here—
He is risen from the dead

and the important thing is—
We live because He lives

so there’s nothing important
left to say, except

Hallelujah! Praise Him!

Maude Carolan Pych

He is risen, indeed!

The above poem is from my chapbook, "A Pilgrim's Quest"
