Holy week is here as we draw closer to the death and new life of Jesus and it’s the main focus of this podcast. But as injections are a focus in 2021, I’m also injecting a bit about Corona and my town.
In spite of the punishment meted out to an innocent Jesus as demanded by weak leaders and approved by the crowd of people, their plan backfired when they put to death the man their leaders did not like.
And through his rebirth, he lives on and is celebrated as a victory of God. ‘Stop Doubting And Believe.’

My Poem ‘Ode To Corona’ from this weeks podcast:
As I return to the streets of my little village
Now a shell of its former self
With a growing line up of ‘For Rent’ signs
In storefronts with empty shelves.
I venture into my favorite restaurant
Now devoid of patrons and devoid of Life
But full of unused tables
Neatly arranged six feet to the left and right.
The corner where the busker once sang
And celebrated the end of the week
Now has a table behind a Plexiglass barrier
By far it is now the eateries safest seat…
And the haunting eyes of the restaurateur
Head of this once busy place
Now he waits on our table, his wife and son
The only other workers this once jovial space.
A child, member of the only other family here this night
Entertains herself by looking at a mirror
That reflects back to her
The only other child here this night.
And though I may be thinner
Since I so rarely go out to dinner
My hope is that these experiences like the 1918 Spanish plague
Also will too, just fade away…

Constant Procession tells of key apparitions of the Virgin Mary since she passed on from the world and how she serves humanity through Christianity.
The origin of these podcasts began with my book The Constant Procession.
(An e-book copy of the book can be found here on the website.)
Constant Procession (the podcast) is published here every Tuesday morning.
