As pause to reflect on Good Friday, take a moment to read this poem by Bruce Dawe.

The poem was shared with us by Fr. Jeremy Clarke and made us pause to think about Good Friday in a way we have not before. We hope it inspires you too.

And a Good Friday Was Had By All

You men there, keep those women back
and God Almighty he laid down
on the crossed timber and old Silenus
my offside looked at me as if to say
nice work for soldiers, your mind's not your own
once you sign that dotted line Ave Caesar
and all that malarkey Imperator Rex

well this Nazarene
didn't make it any easier
really – not like the ones
who kick up a fuss so you can
do your block and take it out on them
Silenus
held the spikes steady and I let fly
with the sledge-hammer, not looking
on the downswing trying hard not to hear
over the women's wailing the bones give way
the iron shocking the dumb wood.

Orders is orders, I said after it was over
nothing personal you understand – we had a
drill-sergeant once thought he was God but he wasn't
a patch on you

then we hauled on the ropes
and he rose in the hot air
like a diver just leaving the springboard, arms spread
so it seemed
over the whole damned creation
over the big men who must have had it in for him
and the curious ones who'll watch anything if it's free
with only the usual women caring anywhere
and a blind man in tears.

Get your tissues ready, Eagles.

BC senior +Josh Coyne shows us just how powerful "thank you" can be.

Watch this video about his thesis findings. Trust us, it's worth the 8 minutes.
