Good Friday

liturgy Add comments

The sun is behind the hill and cannot be seen. Is is now 6:00 in the evening, and the Sabbath approaches very soon. Some more servants arrive and Joseph orders all the men to roll the large stone in front of the entrance. The six of them grunt as they begin to push.

The stone moves, and rolls into place with a thud. And then silence.

After a minute a bird in a nearby tree begins to sing. Another joins the song.

The small group of people hurry back up towards Jerusalem.

The Sabbath has arrived. Jesus is dead and buried.

    I told myself I wouldn’t cry, but I didn’t listen.

    Thank you.
