“Holy Saturday is an invitation to envision a world without Jesus. To try to experience it in a real and personal way… to be with the disciples and with Mary and the other women in their grief over losing Jesus.” writes Susan Stabile in her blog Creo en Dios. See her further reflections.

Oh my word! What a concept! I never looked on Holy Saturday quite that way, because I knew there was an Easter Sunday coming.
A world without Jesus…I bet only Mary really, really knew that Jesus would be back…Mothers know these things. The rest, well, they were busy hiding in an upper room and that says volumes about what they thought.
Powerful stuff. gh
Great comment, Georgia; sobering thought,Susan.
May we always allow a small chink in the rocks of our tombs to let Jesus in.
I have this wonderment going in my head: did Jesus have the exact same DNA as Mary, being that she was the only human he was party to in his creation? (I don’t think the Holy Spirit has DNA…)
And if Jesus and Mary had the same dna, does that make them have such a similar way of thinking, as identical–same dna–twins do think? And does that mean that, when Mary said to Catherine about the Miraculous Medal: ‘the M and the two hearts say enough’?
I’ve been thinking and thinking about this lately. Anyone else have thoughts? gh/a
I couldn’t get to sleep last nite with thinking about this:’was Mary like a surrogate mother, just carrying Jesus?’ Or was she the human mom of Jesus as in the sharing of DNA?
What are the Church’s teachings on this? gh/a
