Year A - Easter Vigil or Hopeless Hope Vigil
April 19/20, 2014
I say to G*D, “Why have you forsaken me?”
I say to my soul, “Why are you cast down?”
As with all “why” questions, there is no adequate singular response.
Continue the vigil past these questions. There are only a magical number 7 more to go. I suppose it is good to know that this is drawing to a close. As with any therapeutic intervention, this vigil may not come to anything before it is time to close. So, one more step. Why? Well, why not?
You’ve paid deeply to come this far. And yet is it always an option to not hold any longer, but fold. Blessings on your decision.
