LEARN TO LIVE, LIVE TO LEARN
“To know much and taste nothing-of what use is that?” ―St. Bonaventure of Bagnoregio
Were the disciples expecting something to happen that Sunday morning? Or were they downhearted, discouraged and depressed?
Jesus' body was taken away and laid in the tomb where it was guarded by Roman soldiers throughout the day on Saturday, which was the Sabbath to make sure that the disciples did not steal Jesus' body.
This terrible Friday has been called Good. Obviously, the suffering Jesus went through on Good Friday was not good. He was whipped, beaten, mocked, and killed in a very violent way. How can that be good?
Holy Thursday is one of the most pivotal days in the life of Jesus Christ.
The scene is a sad one. Jesus, the Messiah of Israel, comes near the city of Jerusalem, and weeps over it.
