Psalm 130

Lent 5 – Year A

Psalm 130

Cry with others
Cry for one's self
Cry simply because it is appropriate to the situation.

Wait with others
Wait with one's self
Wait simply because . . . .

Into these conditions of crying and waiting comes a dawning of awareness that they are not done in isolation. It takes awhile to come to this, but the background noise of the universe is not only T=2.735K (cosmic microwave background) but steadfast love (redemption's background).

Immersed in this background, crying and waiting find their fulfillment.
