All shall be well, and all shall be well and all manner of thing shall be well.
After experiencing the death of Jesus, a few of his friends and family members tenderly wrapped his body, laid him to rest, and prepared for the Sabbath — the day of rest. Not a day of miracle or revolution or fixing the situation. But a day of rest, sitting with the reality of losing Jesus. We can imagine memories coming up in the minds of the disciples on this day. Perhaps they even turned a corner and imagined Jesus would be there, or they set a table and had an impulse to include a place for him. A day of rest, sitting with the pain of loss and the joy of memories. Let us faithfully reside in the waiting of Holy Saturday before fully embracing the ever-flowing light and hope of Easter morning.
