Today is the Day of Great Silence. Our Shepard is gone. This is also the day of a celebration of Evil. They have killed God, the One who became a man to save us. But not for long they will be laughing and shouting in their wicked feast. When darkness will be growing, when the night will come, they will come back to celebrate. But they do not know, that the One who was buried will rise from the dead.
The Son of man will be delivered into the power of men; they will put him to death; and three days after he has been put to death he will rise again. (Mark 9,31)
This is our hope, this is our salvation. We are no longer children of the darkness, no longer do we have to walk in the night, because Jesus is our light, our lamp in the darkness.
Wake up, sleeper, rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you. (Ephesians 5,14)
He is our Sun, the Sun that will always shine for us. So do not worry, be patient and await the night which “is as clear as the day (Ps 138,12).
