Jesus Is Laid in the Tomb

We have our social rituals for disasters: after-action meetings, planning for the future, assessing “where we are.” But unless we consider all of this through the lens of the Resurrection, we will miss the transformational entrance into God’s Kingdom come to earth!
How are you being transformed permanently, even now?
Little did they know that our community would be remembering them 2,000 years later, remembering their courage, when other disciples had scattered. Joseph and Nicodemus, two secret disciples, found strength in one another to publicly bury our Lord. In this pandemic, we, too, find our strength and courage in each other. We pray together and accompany one another in the stillness of the garden tomb.
Pray now for each other and all the intentions you wish to place in the darkness of Christ’s tomb.
When you’re ready, offer this prayer.
Prayer: We adore you, O Christ and we bless you. Because by your Holy Cross, you have redeemed the world. Amen.
