A Weblog Dedicated to the Discussion of the Christian Faith and 21st Century Life
I do not seek to understand that I may believe, but I believe in order to understand. For this also I believe, –that unless I believed, I should not understand.-- St. Anselm of Canterbury (1033-1109)

Holy Saturday: A Great Silence
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.
