    I hope you saw my Good Friday post and read the comment on FB from my friend Wally. Today and tomorrow are certainly a day for silence in my own journey.

    • I did, just now. Thanks for the FB pointer to Wally’s comment, since, as you know, I am staying away from FB these days. Saturday I know as Holy Saturday.

      The Triduum is very important in the Episcopal tradition, and we have a Maundy Thursday service, a Good Friday service, and the Great Easter Vigil Saturday evening. A lot happens between Palm Sunday and Easter.

      And I am not participating in any of those this year. It’s just where I am right now. Easter will arrive even if I don’t participate in the Triduum services.

        Years ago I co-lead with Wally a Holy Week Retreat at Ghost Ranch. It was the only time I have ever been to an 11 pm service on Holy Saturday to greet Easter at midnight. Christmas Eve services yes – Holy Saturday no. It was lovely and the desert setting added depth to the meaning of the service.

        When I talk about the psychology of spirituality, I think that is what I mean. Easter does come, over and over again in all our lives whether we are in the mood for it or believe in it or not. Blessings, my friend.
