day I felt as though God was nowhere to be found. I felt that I had been cut off from God,
and was on my own. All day, even at work working on over 120 church orders of Easter
lilies, tulips, daffodils, and other spring plants getting ready for the biggest feast day of
the year. The one thing that seemed to bother me, was that no one else at work
recognized it as a holy day. It was just another day filling orders, and I felt like I was the
only one acknowledging the sorrow and passion of our Lord. I attended two services
today after work, one was the traditional Good Friday Service in Oconto. The other was at St. Patrick’s in Stiles, which was
Tenebrae Service. Going and sitting in the church, alter stripped, and nothing there but an empty tabernacle, I felt the lack of God’s
presence. I know Good Friday is just a remembrance in which we do not have to attend nor observe I guess, because the deed’s
been done. God was there, but I think that he kept his distance to help feel the pain our Mother Mary and the disciples felt after they
put Christ’s cold body in the Holy sepulcher.
May we all find peace this Easter as we are once again with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
