From the translator’s journal ~White clothe of the Cross~

I visit often
A Dominican Chapel.

Jesus on the Cross
wears a white clothe
on his shoulders
to cover his body.

Whenever I see this Cross,
I think of the warmth of the chapel
and the episode of a Jairus woman
to whom Jesus said:
”Who touched my garments?”

Jesus feels
the faith from the touch,
the touch of our faith.

Though we can’t touch His clothes,
He will feel our faith.
We can find His Face anywhere.

A real touch of faith
Holy Eucharist
spiritual communion
My spiritual white clothe.

It was a beautiful day
with the graceful sunshine.
