An Easter Blizzard - by Sister Lawrence Fischer

Twas the week before Easter in 2022

When it started snowing and the wind blew and blew

At the Monastery, inside all were cozy

With our windows all new.


The snow kept on falling

it piled so high

If it keeps on much longer

it’ll reach to the sky.


The cars are not running;

the roads are blocked in.

Relax and play games

and someone will win.


But we are all winners.

We have food and are warm.

Our Sisters pitch in

and serve with their charm.


Our Lord will watch o’er us

and keep us all safe

If we are all faithful

in love and in grace.


And then on Good Friday

our storm will be over.

Christ died for us all and in three days He rose to new life,

and for us, eternal life to recover.


Alleluia! Alleluia! This is the day the Lord has made;

Let us be glad and rejoice in it. Alleluia!

The Lord is truly risen!



A Blessed and Happy Easter to all

With joy and God’s graces,

As we go on your way

Seeing Christ in all faces.
