A great silence over the earth

"What is happening? Today there is a great silence over the earth, a great silence, and stillness, a great silence because the King sleeps; the earth was in terror and was still, because God slept in the flesh and raised up those who were sleeping from the ages. God has died in the flesh, and the underworld has trembled.”

This, from an ancient homily for Holy Saturday, serves as a brief reminder of the cosmic implications of Christ’s death on the Cross—and what follows. Stay tuned.
