Perhaps – A Good Friday Meditation on Darkness and Light

As we approach the ultimate darkness, a day we call Good Friday, I find myself reflecting on why that’s so. Perhaps God’s mystery is revealed in darkness. In Genesis 1:2,3, we’re told the world was void and darkness covered the earth. And God said, “Let there be light. And there was light.” Just like that.

When alone and afraid, I run through darkness. Perhaps I should embrace it. Perhaps.  For hidden within its shapeless shape, is a pin point of light that beckons. It twirls like a ballerina, full of grace; etches a sunrise; reveals a presence of goodness that truly never left us. As a fresh canvas waits for its artist or a night sky its stars, we await the risen Christ. He always comes back to us, the essence of love.

About Sr. Nun Other

May 16, 2012, completed my 30th year as a Sister. It was both a milestone and just another day in an interesting journey. Some of those thirty years included singing with Gloriae Dei Cantores, marching in Spirit of America band, and serving on our Sisters Council. As a monastic, I live surrounded by beauty and within a frame work of opportunity and possibility. I'm sixty-four (much to my surprise) and extremely grateful for my life as a sister - past, present, and future.
