Good Friday Meditation by Ed Hughes

“His visage was marred more than any man’s
And His form more than the sons of men . . . .”
Today, in the 21st century, this comes across as archaic language.
It enters the mind but doesn’t stimulate mind-pictures.
It stirs neither the heart nor the conscience.

People’s eyes don't tear up as they hear these words:
“His visage was marred more than any man’s
And His form more than the sons of men . . . .”
This hardly informs the modern imagination−
A picture of Rocky' face beaten to a pulp would do it much better.
