The Divine Hours of Lent

The Divine Hours of Lent


Easter Sunday – March 23, 2008

posted by Phyllis Tickle

And so we cry out this morning, as our kind have cried for centuries on every Easter morning:
Christ has died.
Christ has risen
Christ will come again.
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!
Amen.

Phyllis:
I just want to thank you for your insights and stories over these past few weeks.
I am not a Christian but I decided that this year I’d explore Lent as an “outsider looking in” and reading your blog was a highlight of every day. I admit that when I didn’t see a post first thing in the morning I’d obsessively check every half-hour or so until you posted.
In fact, I enjoyed your posts so much that I copied them all down into a Word file so that I would always have them.
Happy Easter! God bless.

I am a seminary student in West Michigan. Our bookstore just got all your books in. I have been telling people at the seminary about you and encouraging them to buy your books. You are encouraging, challenging, and refreshingly progressive. Some of my friends from Mars Hill Bible Church in Grand Rapids told me about their time with you at the NPC. They said you were inspirational. After hearing what you shared with them (or what you wanted to share at the NPC) I was encouraged more. Thank you for being a woman who takes Jesus’ command to love all seriously! You are inspiring. Thank you!
Jes

Holy Saturday - March 22, 2008
Holy Saturday….Always that has seemed to me to be the strangest sort of name to put on this day. Holy? What is holy about utter silence, utter stillness, utter death? Hallowed, yes; but not holy, at least not yet, not for a few more hours. And so today I am caught all day between two tensions. I r

Good Friday - March 21, 2008
As I was nearing the end of the months of compiling the Sayings of Jesus into the The Words of Jesus volume and, even more, during these last five or six weeks since it has been published, I received, and have continued to receive, some fairly thought-provoking questions. I have received enough, in

Jesus, as the Passover meal was ending, said, "Peace I leave with you; my peace I give unto you. But not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled, and do not let them be afraid. You heard me say to you, 'I am going away, and I am coming back again to you.' If you loved

Lent ends today; or more correctly, this is the last, full day of Lent. Tomorrow is Maundy Thursday, and tomorrow night at sunset, Lent gives way to the Triduum…to the three days that are the culmination of Lent. Tomorrow night, Christian around the world will commemorate the Last Supper, the fina

Tuesday - March 18, 2008
Many long years ago--meaning well over a quarter of a century ago--I wrote a book about Lent entitled Final Sanity. It and/or pieces of it have been re-printed so many times that I don't even have a record of where and when, except to say that it was re-published in toto by Loyola Press some three o
