I am more aware of the pull of the holy days to Easter.
The idea of the snake on the top of the stick, and Jesus upon the cross, was a symmetry that boggles the imagination.
We are in the midst of creating a crucifix for our Church, to be carried for Easter Sunday as we hold worship out at the Columbarium of the Church. As I told the friend making the cross: we needed something to look up to as we worship the risen Christ on Easter morning.
I look up and forward on pilgrimage nowadays.
It makes all the world of difference.
