The Abyss

Viaticum courtesy site

Greetings on this Holy Saturday
Readings: None

There are no reading today. No funerals, no weddings, no Masses.

Holy Communion can only be given as Viaticum, Bread for the Journey, for those in immediate risk of death.

The season of Lent can be thought of as a period of Anticipatory Grief.
Holy Saturday can be thought of as a period of profound Bereavement.

The Marys sit shiva in disbelief at the outcome.

Today is not a day of preaching, convincing, nor persuasion.

For now let us allow the abyss to have its full meaning. It is the ‘alternate future’ for the quantum mystics among us.

A probability but for Grace.

Peace be with you,
Deacon Gerry
