5/15 Limerick: Come, Passion


Compassion may seem quite in fashion
Until it’s our face that is ashen
But if we’re His Bride
We’ll stay by His side
No matter the waves that are crashin’!

Mark 6:50 for they all saw Him and were terrified. But Jesus spoke up at once: “Take courage! It is I. Do not be afraid.”


c. 1200, “the sufferings of Christ on the Cross; the death of Christ,” from Old French passion “Christ’s passion, physical suffering” (10c.), from Late Latin passionem (nominative passio) “suffering, enduring,” from past-participle stem of Latin pati “to endure, undergo, experience,” a word of uncertain origin. The notion is “that which must be endured.””
