God is dead!
No wonder the earth quaked, the sun hid itself, the dead rose and Mary stood by in horror.
Your human body gave up it’s soul in death but Your Divinity, dear Jesus, continued to manifest its power.
All creation rebelled as the Word made Flesh departed from this world.
Man alone was too proud to see and too stubborn to acknowledge truth.
Redemption was accomplished!
Man would never have an excuse to forget how much You loved him.
The thief on Your right saw something he could not explain – he saw a man on a tree and knew He was God.
