Allan R. Bevere: Holy Saturday: A Great Silence

Original post at http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/allanbevere/ROss/~3/bDJy0CX-4y8/holy-saturday-great-silence.html



Leader: Today a great silence reigns on earth, a great silence and a great stillness. A great silence because the King is asleep.

People: The earth trembled and is still because God has fallen asleep in the flesh and he has raised up all who have slept ever since the world began.

Leader: Jesus has gone to search for Adam and Eve, our first parents, as for lost sheep.

People: Greatly desiring to visit those who live in darkness and in the shadow of death, he has gone to free from sorrow Adam in his bonds and Eve, captive with him-- He who is both their God and the son of Eve.

All: "I am your God who for your sake have become your son... I order, O sleeper, to awake. I did not create you to be a prisoner in hell. Rise from the dead, for I am the life of the dead.


Prayer: O God, Creator of heaven and earth-- Grant that, as the crucified body of your dear Son was laid in the tomb and rested on this holy Sabbath, so we may await with him the coming of the third day, and rise with him to newness of life; who now lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Allan R. Bevere: Holy Week: Good Friday

Original post at http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/allanbevere/ROss/~3/K36LI8s74e4/holy-week-good-friday.html


My Lord, your son has suffered so much, shed so much blood. I was born with so many faults and my nature is so full of weakness, and yet your son Jesus has died on the cross. For me. I know your grace has the power to cleanse me of my many sins and to make me more like your Son. Thank you for your goodness and love for me. I ask you, Father, to watch over me-- always. Amen.

Allan R. Bevere: Holy Week: Maundy Thursday

Original post at http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/allanbevere/ROss/~3/VQtmVfgYPRE/holy-week-maundy-thursday.html



Loving Provider, you gather me in this upper room with your son, to be fed by your love. At that supper, Jesus told us to "love one another" and I know that is the heart of his gift, his sacrifice for me. I ask that I might find the source of my own heart, the meaning for my own life, in that Eucharist. Guide me to the fullness of your love and life. Amen.

Allan R. Bevere: Did Jesus Die on Wednesday?

Original post at http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/allanbevere/ROss/~3/dSzQwwaZFf0/did-jesus-die-on-wednesday.html


Dr. Claude Mariottini thinks so.

It is important to emphasize that John's view that Jesus died on 14 Nisan, the day of preparation for the Passover, is the best interpretation of the time when Jesus died. He died on the eve of the Passover.

Another clue that must be taken into consideration when deciding the day Jesus died is found in Jesus’ answer to the Pharisees when they asked him for a sign. Jesus said to them: "An evil and adulterous generation asks for a sign, but no sign will be given to it except the sign of the prophet Jonah. For just as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the sea monster, so for three days and three nights the Son of Man will be in the heart of the earth" (Matthew 12:39-40).

The question then is whether we should take the "three days and three nights" literally or symbolically. If Jesus died on a Friday, then the three days and three nights must be taken symbolically, that is, counting the few hours after his death as a whole day, the sabbath as the second day, and the morning of the first week as the third day.

The symbolic interpretation of the days does not account for the three days and three nights that Jesus said he would be "in the heart of the earth." So, there must be another way of deciding the day when Jesus died. I want to make a proposal, one that is based on the Jewish calendar.
