Adhuc tecum sum

During this great Good Friday of all humanity, which is now drawing to a close and is a prelude to the victory of the Resurrection, the obscene cries and vile cruelties of the crowd terrify us and make us think that everything is lost, especially in contemplating how many cries of “Hosanna” have turned into cries of “Crucify Him.” But everything is not lost, dear brothers and sisters! On the contrary: if we have reached Good Friday, we know that the silence of Holy Saturday is imminent, which will soon be pierced by the sound, no longer of festive bells, but of the trumpets of Judgment, the Triumphal Return of the glorious Lord.
