Today the suns shines in the valley. Colors are alive. Everything seems glorious.
Today is Holy Saturday and the Vigil of Easter. According to the Little Black Book (www.littlebooks.org) there are four parts to the Easter Vigil:
The Ceremony of Fire, The Liturgy of the Word, The Liturgy of Baptsm, and The Liturgy of the Eucharist.
"The Liturgy of the Word: Listening to the word of God is to give hope, that all of history is in God's hands, that the universe ultimately works toward good, not evil."
