Quotation of the month
|April sees Christians remembering the
tumult of experiences and emotions that the disciples went through as Jesus was
arrested, convicted in a fixed trial, suffered a political execution and then
when all hope seemed gone, and they were in the depths of grief and despair, he
rose from death to return to the locked room where they had gathered. These
words attempt to capture just a little of how the disciples might have felt.
Doubt padlocked one door and Memory put her back to the other. Still the damp draught seeped in Though Fear chinked all the cracks and Blindness boarded up the window. In the darkness that was left Defeat crouched in his cold corner. Then Jesus came (all the doors being shut) and stood among them.
