Easter Garden

I know Easter has passed so my post is a little late on the subject but I thought this Easter garden displayed in the Holy Trinity Church in Cork city centre was worth a look see!
The garden was complete with various miniature figures,some little animals and lovely greenery.The tomb area featured a waterfall and was lit up and drew crowds to admire it during Holy Week.

The Easter garden featured the symbol of the empty tomb,you can see the loincloth on the rocks and the white area is lit up showing an empty space inside.

This little take on the eight beatitudes was printed on the back of a notelet entitled The Capuchin, which was left on the seats during the Easter masses,
Beatitudes of the Elderley
Blessed are they who understand my faltering step and shaking hand.
Blessed are they who know my ears today must strain to catch the things they say.
Blessed are they who seem to know my eyes are dim and my mind slow.
Blessed are they with a cheery smile who stopped to chat for a little while.
Blessed are they who never say you!ve told that story twice today.
Blessed are they who make it know that I !m loved,respected and not alone.
And blessed are they who ease the days of my journey home, in loving ways.



  1. Hi Kathleen,
    What a beautiful post. I loved the eight beautitudes for the Elderly that you posted. I'm going to print and frame that. I love the sentiment.
    Hope you are having a wonderful day.

  2. Jane, I am sure you will turn it into a work of art! Have a good week!

  3. I knew the Sacred Heart church had an Easter garden but not the Holy Trinity. It looks beautiful, the beatitudes sound good took some thought to put them together.

  4. Hi Kathleen,

  5. Beautiful pictures from Easter!
    Thank you so very much for leaving the sweet sentiment on my blog.
    I hope your day is going well...more laughter than tears when you think of your mother.
    I feel as though I have already cried a river today and it is still early.
    'Just tied birthday balloons on our mailbox...what we always do for our children's birthdays.

    How nice it is to see the colours emerging in your garden too as is the same here.
