Good Friday

Here I am, sitting dressed in black, at my computer with a few moments of quietness. This week has been one that I have hoped for and dreamed about. A week that, last year, seemed a lifetime away. Holy Week. Easter. The week that we receive the Eucharist for the first time. Here it is. […]
