Holy Saturday… A Vigil

April 15, 2017

The day between the gruesome crucifixion

And for the disciples and the women, an unknown tomorrow

For us it was a time to relax in Denver while our niece visited with a friend

Yet in the midst of the hustle and bustle of Denver I felt it

An emptiness… A wondering… A longing…

Lord, on this particular Sabbath day, did you rest?

Did you spread your message of reconciling love in the realm of the dead?

We forget about the mystery… the fear… the wondering of your first followers

Help us to watch and wait and wonder with them

Not knowing the “rest of the story”

Help us to mourn properly the events of that Friday long ago

Lord, in that mourning, may we also pray for this shattered and broken world

Dona Nobis Pacem et in Terra

Grant Us Peace on Earth
