Holy Saturday

Blessed Holy Saturday,

Our Lord is in the bowels of the earth

Just as Jonah spent three days and three nights
in the belly of the whale,
so will the Son of Man spend three days and three nights
in the bowels of the earth.
~Matthew 12:40

It was rebellion
that got Jonah on the ship
in flight from God.
Obedience
then sent him to the whale
to calm the storm
that stirred the seas
(and Jonah’s heart)
before it led to holiness
in Nineveh
(cf. Jonah 1-3).

So, too,
rebellion
that began with Adam
raised the storm
of soul
that Jesus came to quell
with His obedience
to death.

The world is still,
profoundly silent,

the sea’s raging abated
~Jonah 1:15

straining for
the first returning
of the Voice
that will be burning
as it races with salvation
throughout all of space and time.

Is your soul expectantly still, prepared to heed the Voice of God as He rises from the dead for you?
