CQOD: 04/15/06 -- Meynell: all alone

Christian Quotation of the Day

April 15, 2006
Holy Saturday
    ... the angel said to the women, "Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. He is not here, for he has risen, as he said. Come, see the place where he[a] lay. Then go quickly and tell his disciples that he has risen from the dead, and behold, he is going before you to Galilee; there you will see him. See, I have told you."
    -- Matthew 28:5-7

    All night had shouts of men and cry
        Of woeful women filled His way;
    Until that noon of sombre sky
        On Friday, clamor and display
    Smote Him; no solitude had He.
    No silence, since Gethsemane.

    Public was death; but power, but might,
        But life again, but victory,
    Were hushed within the dead of night,
        The shuttered dark, the secrecy.
    And all alone, alone, alone
    He rose again behind the stone.
    ... Alice Meynell (1847-1922)

Quiet time reflection:
    You rose again, according to the promise of the Father. Because of You, I now have the same promise.
