I thought this was an excellent article and cause for contemplation on this Holy Saturday. What must the disciples have thought in those hours and days between Jesus’ death on the cross and his resurrection? How much doubt, how much disappointment, how much frustration and fear was handed between them all as they sat in the silence of each others company, eyes lost, mind wandering? “Were we wrong?” “Am I, too, destined for death?” “What do we do now?”
Fear not your own doubt when it comes, my friends. Not ‘if’ it comes, but ‘when’, for we all doubt and question. It is the simple nature of humanity.
Yes, Easter will come, but we must also know, and come to terms with, those times of fear, of doubt, and of frustration. Thank God we know how this story ends!
