WHERE ONCE BRAVE HEARTS GATHERED

By Al Garcia

The time at Calvary, when crowds once gathered to watch, to mock and to crucify a man and a miracle of spirit and of promise, was also a day when many mourned and fell to their knees in shame and in prayer.  It was a time where once brave hearts gathered, and broken hearts wept.

Those were the days of great expectations and anticipation.  For the world, it was the dawning of a new beginning.  Those were the days of the awakening of man’s soul, and the awareness and recognition of man’s burden, and the comprehension of mortal man’s frailty, transformation and alleviation.

Easter Sunday is our day to reflect on that time and that place at Calvary, and a day for all brave hearts to remember those we’ve loved and lost, and to believe and trust the promise and the surety of what happened on the cross at Calvary, when the heavens wept and the world embraced the perfection and fulfillment of creation. 

Yet, the time at Calvary never seems to end.  Crowds still gather to watch, to mock and to victimize and torture the innocent and trusting among us.  Too many still mourn and fall to their knees with anguish and despair at the sight and sound of war and rumors of war, and at the vulgarity of unrestrained greed and corruption that defiles the trust, the promise and the surety of the perfection and fulfillment of our creation. 

The days of great expectations and anticipation still linger in the conscience of our being.  Easter Sunday reawakens the beauty of new creation, and resurrects the spirit of belief, and of the trust and promise bestowed on a hilltop so many eons ago. 

And for those we have loved and lost, for many of us, Easter Sunday is a day to rejoice, if we believe and trust in the promise on the hill at Calvary. 

I believe in miracles, and in that time and place where once brave hearts gathered, and broken hearts wept.
