Holy Week

Waiting… waiting…  the images of waiting are everywhere just before Easter.  Mary Magdalene at the tomb, the disciples wondering “what now?”, all of us in suspension after the events of Good Friday and before the release of Easter Sunday morning.  But even, maybe even especially, in our impatient world of instant gratification, waiting can be a fruitful spiritual practice.  “Like the space in a Chinese painting, time in which nothing happens has its purpose.”
