Many indeed are the wondrous happenings of that time: God hanging from a Cross, the sun made dark, and again flaming out; for it was fitting that creation should mourn with its Creator. The temple veil rent, blood and water flowing from his side: the one as from a man, the other as from what was above man; the earth was shaken, the rocks shattered because of the rock; the dead risen to bear witness of the final and universal resurrection of the dead. The happenings at the sepulchre, and after the sepulchre, who can fittingly recount them? Yet not one of them can be compared to the miracle of my salvation. A few drops of blood renew the whole world, and do for all men what the rennet does for milk: joining us and binding us together.
– St Gregory of Nazianzus in Ancient Commentary on Scripture
Indeed, many are the wondrous happening of these next days. We are invited to watch and see, to come and worship, to meditate and reflect.
What are your plans for this Holy Week? How will you meet with Him? Will you change your routines to make room?
