All That Glitters


Solomon Machardson

Jesus did not wear the Crown of Gold.

In order to stress the power

Of suffering and of penance,

He was made to wear the Crown of Thorns

The lesson is that though all that glitters

May not be gold, yet they are tempting!

They are the decoys that lead us away

From the path of salvation.
