Year A - Easter Vigil or Hopeless Hope Vigil
April 19/20, 2014
Wisdom invites friends and foe to come and feast. Understanding is not out of reach. We can yet learn. Prudence contains a measure of patience.
Here in the middle of a vision quest we find our immaturity and lay it aside.
Yes, death is real. Loss is no less real. And even reality lies nestled within reality.
So look again. Have I judged this book by its cover?
Empty tomb and empty cloth mean so much and so little.
Let’s go over this one more time. Be not afraid. Gloria in the skies and field. Dedicated blessing. Lying fallow and learning. Belovedness. Temptations, teachings, healings, one-another. More temptations at an arrest and dignity at a show trial. Death, burial, and emptiness. And here we are. Is there more to walk? What is now mine that wasn’t before?
