Contemplative Life, Liturgical Seasons

A Reading of “The Dream of the Rood”

In this “Simple Soundings,” Drew Masterson (Coracle Dir. of Comms & Development) offers a slow, prayerful reading of a classic of English Christian Poetry, “The Dream of the Rood.” The poem itself is an extended reflection on the Crucifixion and Resurrection from the perspective of the Cross, so it makes a particularly good addition to Holy Week. We hope this reading will be a blessing to you!

If you would like to learn more background on the poem and how you might approach it devotionally, please see Drew’s introduction HERE
