Reflection: Let Him Easter in us

EASTER is now!

Gerard Manley Hopkins has a wonderful poem, ‘The Wreck of the Deutschland,’ where he uses the phrase ‘Let him Easter in us.’ In this phrase, he uses the noun Easter as a verb. Hopkins writes, ‘Let him Easter in us, be a dayspring to the dimness of us.’ 

A miracle indeed. Reflection for Easter.
