How We Endured the Pandemic of 2020 Day 24

April 11, Holy Saturday


My brothers and sisters in Christ,

Today I invite you to read and reflect on this poem by Janet Morley


When we are all despairing;

when the world is full of grief;

when we see no way ahead,

and hope has gone away:


Roll back the stone.


Although we fear change;

although we are not ready;

although we’d rather weep

and run away:


Roll back the stone.


 Because we’re coming with the women;

because we hope where hope is vain;

because you call us from the grave

and show the way:


Roll back the stone.

 ……the stone is being rolled back. We need not live in fear.

Soon and very soon, Fr. Leo
