Good Friday Homily
I heard the most interesting point made in a Good Friday homily ever, and I know you are all probably super saturated at this point in your journey towards Easter...So I'll leave you with this brief synopsis.
The Passion narrative begins with a scene in a garden. The scene of Christ's agony acted out in supplication to His Heavenly Father. The narrative ends with another scene in a garden. Christ's corpse being placed in the garden of the empty tomb.
It is in the revelation and wonder of God that we realize we have to travel from one garden to another. To come the road that goes full circle. And the only way to go from one garden to the other is through...The cross.
It restores us to that Garden we had lost so long ago.
I was greatly touched by that, and I just thought I'd share.
God Bless you all as we trudge on to Easter.
