The Fourteenth Station: Jesus is laid in the Sepulchre.
The Sabbath is a day of rest, because God rested on the Sabbath day. This is just one of many ways in which the events of the past few days fold Time and Space in on themselves. Is this what the writer of Genesis meant when he spoke of the seventh day upon which God rested?
And while God rests, the world just carries on as normal.
"There is no God."
"We don't need God in order to be moral people."
"God is a despicable being, a hateful, jealous, petty, abusive monster."
"Where was God when...?"
Has the world actually been paying attention?
God has nothing to prove.
We have nothing to prove.
Let's just wait for tomorrow.
Tomorrow is a whole new day.
