April 8th Readings Reflection: Holy Saturday
I love the thought that we are in limbo. I believe that the English word limbo (not the dance :) ) comes from the Latin, limbus. It means the fringe or edge. The whole world waited as if standing on a precipice not knowing what comes next. Today we know what happened on Sunday. Yet, even with that knowledge, the world still waits and holds it breadth not realizing, like the two disciples on the road to Emmaus that the Lord is risen. He waits to draw us from the edge and save.
