Deeper into hope
Christ Jesus body lay in darkness, surrounded by the cold and nothingness of death. Its grip hard and heavy; seeking to bring Jesus into death’s kingdom, the cessation of hope, love, warmth and true life, is death’s scepter, despair all it has to offer. So now it is a period of waiting, hoping and seeking understanding of this great Christian mystery, the salvation of mankind though love. The grave awaits all of us, with its cold dark embrace. Yet the sun will again rise and the resurrection of Jesus brings us deeper into hope, giving deeper meaning to the meaning of love, mercy and healing.
