Third Week of Easter – Text for Spiritual Reflection

This week, we suggest you read a text written by Dietrich Bonhoeffer (1906-1945), a German protestant pastor and theologian, who was involved in the resistance movement against the Nazi regime during the 1930s and during World War II.

He was arrested in April 1943 and executed in April 1945. During his time in prison, he wrote several letters and other personal thoughts.

On Friday, tips for personal prayer and/or personal reflections inspired by this poem and taken from the Scripture will be posted on this website.

“You know me, Lord, you see me, you probe my heart, which is close to yours” (Jr 12, 3)
