Behold, the Lamb of GodGood news for the poor!

 

John the Baptist saw Jesus coming toward him and said, "Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world. He is the one of whom I said, 'A man is coming after me who ranks ahead of me because he existed before me.' I did not know him, but the reason why I came baptizing with water was that he might be made known to Israel." John testified further, saying, "I saw the Spirit come down like a dove from heaven and remain upon him. I did not know him, but the one who sent me to baptize with water told me, 'On whomever you see the Spirit come down and remain, he is the one who will baptize with the Holy Spirit.  Now I have seen and testified that he is the Son of God." (Jn 1:29-24)

Vine

we ripen to be harvested

but till we become sparkling wine

darkness of wine cellar must come

and pressing and peeling before that

the only thing can remain

is  the juice;

it needs to lie in darkness and silence

to become prefect wine

which delights our mind
