I have been thinking this week about the contrast that we experience in this week of the death and resurrection of Jesus.
It is strange and unusual that we, in this one short week, and actually in two short days (Friday to Sunday), are confronted with so much death and so much life.
Have you ever thought about that?
Which other religion or celebration or ritual invented by humans has this kind of contrast?
Death is dramatically posed next to life in a juxtaposition that only the Bible and the gospel could think of.
And the gospel displays all of its glory: the deeper the darkness, the more radiant the light.
