Holy Saturday - Psalm 27
We are at rest while the body of Jesus lies in the tomb. We do not know when the moment of resurrection occurred two thousand years ago. But we, who know the end of this story, know that the crucifixion was not the end of the Jesus story. We do not know how the story ended, but we that it ended in triumph. Right now we can rest.
Maybe you are spending today helping to prepare the sanctuary for the Easter celebrations starting this evening. Maybe you are rushing around preparing your home for family visitors. You are busy, stretched and you don’t have time to breathe.
But remember that the reason for all the celebration of Easter is that our Lord was crucified and laid in the tomb until the third day. Can you pause to be quiet with Jesus?
Then you can proclaim (as you will in the Eucharistic feast)
Christ has died. Christ is risen. Christ will come again.
