holy saturday

I was just thinking about what this night must have been like all those years ago.
The body still lying in the grave...
The disciples huddled together in a room. Nobody sleeping. An incredible mixture of grief and fear and forgetfulness...
Satisfied Pharisees sleeping the sleep of those convinced of victory...
Roman guards changing quiet shifts in the middle of the night...
And God, what was the Father up to at this time of night?

It must have been the most pregnant night in history.

At midnight:06 may I be the first to say Happy Easter.
L'amour de Dieu est folie. But it is beautiful folly.
