Holy Saturday retreat: Stone, angel, and empty tomb
Read the following account of Easter
as prayerfully as you can.
You’ve heard this story before,
but just pretend that you’re reading it for the first time,
open to the surprises of the Word of God.
Imagine yourself part of the scene,
feeling the mingled emotions of that first Easter morn:
puzzlement, excitement, and fear.
Note how stones and angels –
previously silent and absent –
almost take center stage in this story.
As you read this passage,
you may want to play this piece
of instrumental music
to help you pray over this passage.
