… (Holy Saturday)

I believe it was Karl Rahner, writing of Holy Saturday, who said:

Today is the day that “God is dead.”

The Eastern churches say:

On this holy day the creator rested from all His works.

As I ponder this paradox,
it seizes me:

If Jesus had not been willing to do this,

this Gentile boy might know nothing
about the character of God.
