It is Good Friday so the subject matter for the day’s reading presented itself easily enough. Choosing what to read, however, was a very different matter. There is so much.
In the end, I plumped for a profound and moving section from Uncle John’s masterwork, The Cross of Christ. It is a book I have returned to again and again. It deserves rereading.
And for our purposes here, it gives us a triple whammy: some extraordinary testimony (from Holocaust survivor, Elie Wiesel); a narrative (entitled ‘The Long Silence’), and a poem (from Edward Shillito).
So here it is; if the video does not display, click here.
