"The central doctrine of Christianity, then, is not that God is a bastard. It is, in the words of the late Dominican theologian Herbert McCabe, that if you don’t love you’re dead, and if you do, they’ll kill you."--Terry Eagleton

"...doesn't philosophy amount to the sum of all thinkable and unthinkable errors, ceaselessly repeated?"--Jean-Luc Marion

“The opposite of poverty is not wealth; the opposite of poverty is justice."--Bryan Stevenson

Holy Week 2019: Good Friday into Holy Saturday

What I miss most about church service is the music.  Rarely did I get to hear a string quartet, or anything other than an electronic organ, play in worship.  I miss the hymn singing most of all.  This is the only appropriate music for Good Friday, I think.  The worship service should be without music or singing, the day as quiet as possible, the mood as somber as can be achieved.  But if a string quartet could play this, live, as the service ended and everyone left, it would be nearly perfect.

In my imagination, anyway.

"Now there was a garden in the place where he had been crucified, and a new tomb in the garden where no one had yet been laid to rest."--John 19:41, SV.
