Good Friday

Can you imagine the despair that Jesus' followers, friends, and family must have felt on this night about 2,000 years ago? Not only was their dear friend, brother, son or teacher gone, but with him died their hopes and dreams. The scoffers laughed, the uninterested shrugged, but the hearts of the faithful broke. We know the end of the story, but they did not. Their sorrow must have been overwhelming. Once the sorrow had fully sunk in, the fear took its place with a mighty rush. We know that the Twelve locked themselves in a back room,  because this was where Jesus found them later. It was a dark time.
     And yet, as they suffered the agony of grieving and of they unknown, the spiritual world was exploding. Something big was happening, something wonderful and too beautiful to describe....
