Yesterday was Good Friday, and I spent several hours in Church participating in the liturgies of the memories, as we are encouraged by Holy Church.
Today, the Church refers to as Holy Saturday; I feel empty, knowing many Christians want His Resurrection but not His Cross; I cry!
Remembering how He was placed into the tomb and closed, separated, I feel deep mourning. We, the laity and the Church spend at Our Lord’s sepulcher, this day meditating on His Sacred Passion and Death. There is no Mass; the sacred altar is bare.
Knowing that Jesus at any time could have said NO! STOP! I will redeem them without all this suffering, but would we appreciate it if He did? This is the Mystery of our Faith! Remember too, how SHORT our life is on earth, even 100 years is short compared to eternity!
