From the translator’s journal ~Matthew Passion~

I listen to the Matthew Passion
almost everyday, these days:
Erbarme dich, mein Gott!

While listening,
I take the book “Sacrifice”

Tomorrow is the anniversary
of the end of the War.
Oh, how many people died for the war…

I think of the people
sacrificed in the War
They might be used as a stepping stone
for our prosperous life now…

My journey of atonement
will continue still,
praying for their soul,
praying for the Mercy of God.

Erbarme dich, mein Gott!
