A meditation for Holy Week
By Fr. Paul Mankowski, S.J. (articles ) | Apr 14, 2003
Who knows not Love, let him assay
And taste that juice, which on the crosse a pike
Did set again abroach; then let him say
If ever he did taste the like.
Love is that liquour sweet and most divine,
Which my God feels as bloud; but I, as wine.
-- George Herbert (1593 -1633), "The Agonie"
