Easter Sunday


by Fr. Andrew Pastore on 29/03/2012

When the Word is proclaimed, it is real and active – the Lord is present, and what is described is, in a sense, happening now. On certain days this is made more obvious by the selection of scripture that refers to a particular time or day. Such a selection occurs this morning, when we go with Mary Magdalene to visit the tomb, only to make – with her – a momentous discovery: the tomb is empty, he is risen!

Holy Saturday


by Fr. Andrew Pastore on 29/03/2012

Holy Saturday is about emptiness. ‘The cross is empty now, and still.’ Where is the Lord? The heavens and the earth cry out with longing for the sinless one who is not to be found. We, the people of the sacraments, are denied the sacraments, to create in us the same longing. We wait, as mourners beside a grave, unsettled, ill at ease, almost not knowing what to do with ourselves. The Church has only one thing to do today: to pray through the emptiness of Holy Saturday. It must not be like any other day – there simply is no other day like it. All that might happen in Church is the Liturgy of the Hours – Morning Prayer or the Office of Readings. If these are celebrated, all should make a special effort to take part, so that we are part of the bemused and wondering prayer of this day. Below is an extract from one of the strangest, and yet most moving readings of the year: it is taken from an ancient homily for Holy Saturday, and is the second reading in the Office of Readings. It is given here to help us pray this day, and prepare for the glory of Christ’s rising from the darkness of this night.
