It is Easter Saturday. I do not use my PC on Sunday, so let me now wish all my readers a Happy Easter! Christ is Risen! Alleluia!
Many will make the effort to go to church, in an ordinary year. But doing so under the current regulations requires booking in advance, with limited numbers. So only a few will be able to attend.
This week some will have been busy attending daily Easter services. These services are important, especially to those for whom following the liturgy is all. Such people must find every element of modern society conspires against them.
But I would guess that at the moment very many people are rather isolated, just as I am. It feels like being on Mars – a constant, slightly spacey feeling of detachment. Even simple things are a strain.
Without imposing any burden, may I suggest that all those who have given their life to Jesus will take the time on Sunday to just kneel in prayer and sing a song or hymn of praise, however short. God listens to our hearts, not the length of our prayers and services.
Happy Easter. Get yourself an Easter egg, if you haven’t got one already. And celebrate, even if you are alone. Celebrate along with the angels, and with all of Christendom!
