The Eve of Easter
It is Holy Saturday evening.
I am aware of so many different images of pilgrimage in the last few days, from labyrinths to a pilgrimage for justice and peace in the Raleigh-Durham, NC area on Good Friday. There are images of Jesus being crucified in a pilgrimage in Germany, and the holy procession in the old city of Jerusalem.
I reflected upon the power of the cross all day, now and then finding myself humming "Jesus Christ is risen today." I am caught between Good Friday and Easter.
