“Early on the first day of the week, while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene came to the tomb and saw that the stone had been removed from the tomb.
“When it was evening on that day, the first day of the week, and the doors of the house where the disciples had met were locked for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you.” After he said this, he showed them his hands and his side. Then the disciples rejoiced when they saw the Lord.”
John 20:1, 19-20 NRSV
Holy Saturday reflections.
The Harrowing of Hell (Latin: Descensus Christi ad Inferos, "the descent of Christ into Hell") is the triumphant descent of Christ into Hell (or Hades) between the time of his crucifixion and resurrection when he brought salvation to all of the righteous who had died since the beginning of the world.
All these things the Savior thought fit to do, so that, recognizing His bodily acts as works of God, men who were blind to His presence in creation might regain knowledge of the Father. ...The sun veiled his face, the earth quaked, the mountains were rent asunder, all men were stricken with awe. These things showed that Christ on the cross was God, and that all creation was His slave and was bearing witness by its fear to the presence of its Master. - Athanasius of Alexandria, On the Incarnation of The Lord , "Chapter 4: The Death of Christ."

Urban Ecology refers to the city life. The kind of life that happens within the density of our neighborhoods.
Applying the rules of ecology for plant and animal life are also true for the city and citizens of dense communities.
Lesson: The plants and animals understand the keys to survival- they adjust to their conditions, we should too. Stay home and stay safe. You CAN adapt and you can survive. Not to do so put you and all others at risk.
My son called me to the bathroom saying, “Daddy, hurry the toilet is smoking!” 😂🤦🏼♂️

“Jesus said to him, “ ‘You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’”
Matthew 22:37-39 NKJV
Also known as animi cruciatus (affliction of spirit) and compunctio cordis (repentance of heart).

Just wanted to share a snippet from my studies on fasting and prayer this week. As you pray take some time to read through the scriptures.:
Jerome described the history of fasting among the people of God. Adam, Moses Elijah, Daniel, David, Samson, Samuel, Anna, John the Baptist and Cornelius all benefited greatly from some type of fasting. Others who refused to fast were led away into ungodliness. The pattern here seems to be that those who are willing to deprive themselves for a greater purpose are rewarded in some way.
“On those of faith, Jerome began with Adam, who fasted from meat and from the one tree. So long as he fasted, he remained in Paradise; he ate, and was cast out. Even when cast out he did not immediately receive permission to eat meat; but only the fruits of trees and the produce of the crops, and herbs and vegetables were given him for food, that even when an exile from Paradise he might not feed on meat.”
“The people of Israel, on their way to the land of promise, longed for the meat of Egypt, ‘Would that we had died by the hand of the Lord in the land of Egypt, when we sat by the meat pots’ (Exodus 16:3). And again, ‘Who shall give us meat to eat? We remember the fish which we ate in Egypt; but now our soul is dried away and we have nothing except this manna to look at’ (Numbers 11:4-6). They despised angels’ food (Psalm 78:25), and longed for the meat of Egypt.”
“Moses for forty days and forty nights fasted on Mount Sinai, and showed even then that man does not live on bread alone, but on every word of God (Deuteronomy 8:3, Matthew 4:4). Moses with empty stomach received the law written with the finger of God (Exodus 31:18). The people that ate and drank and rose up to play fashioned a golden calf (Exodus 32:4-6), and preferred an Egyptian ox to the majesty of the Lord. So the people well fed could not bear to look at the face of Moses (Exodus 34:29-35) who fasted.”
“But the second writing of the tables of the Law could not have been done without fasting. What was lost by drunkenness at the time of the golden calf was regained by abstinence, a proof that by fasting we can return to Paradise, from which, through fullness, we have been expelled.”
“Elijah after the preparation of a forty days’ fast saw God on Mount Horeb, and heard from Him (1 Kings 19:8-11). When the people were assembled in Mizpah, Samuel proclaimed a fast, and so strengthened them, and thus made them prevail against the enemy (1 Samuel 7:7-10). The attack of the Assyrians was repulsed, and the might of Sennacherib utterly crushed, by the tears and sackcloth of King Hezekiah, and by his humbling himself with fasting (2 Kings 18). So also the city of Nineveh by fasting excited compassion and turned aside the threatening wrath of the Lord (Jonah 3). Ahab, the most impious of kings, by fasting and wearing sackcloth, succeeded in escaping the sentence of God (1 Kings 21:27-29), and in deferring the overthrow of his house to the days of his posterity. Hannah, the wife of Elkanah, by fasting won the gift of a son” (1 Samuel 1:15-17).
- Jerome, Against Jovinianus, II, 15-16.
“Daniel and the three youths gained a good report by fasting, and although they were fed on beans and lentils, they were healthier-looking and wiser than they who ate the meat from the king’s table (Daniel 1-2). Daniel fasted for three weeks; he ate no bread; he was not anointed with oil. He, who in the eyes of God was worthy of compassion, afterwards was an object of terror to the lions in their den. How nice a thing it is, which propitiates God, tames lions, terrifies demons! Habakkuk, the prophet, was sent10 to him with the reaper’s meal, for by a week’s abstinence he had merited so distinguished a server.”
“David, when his son was in danger after his adultery, made confession in ashes and with fasting. He tells us that he ate ashes like bread, and mingled his drink with weeping (Psalm 102:9). His knees became weak through fasting (Psalm 109:24). Yet he had certainly heard from Nathan the words, ‘The Lord has put away your sin’” (2 Samuel 12:13).
“Samson and Samuel drank neither wine nor strong drink (Judges 13, 1 Samuel 1:11), for they were children of promise, and conceived in abstinence and fasting. Aaron and the other priests, when about to enter the temple, refrained from all intoxicating drink for fear they should die (Leviticus 10:9). From this, we learn that they will die who serve in the Church without sobriety. Thus it is a reproach against Israel, ‘You gave my Nazirites wine to drink’ (Amos 2:12). Jonadab, the son of Rechab, commanded his sons to drink no wine forever. And when Jeremiah offered them wine to drink, and they of their own accord refused it, the Lord spoke by the prophet, saying, ‘Because you have obeyed the commandment of Jonadab your father, Jonadab the son of Rechab shall not want a man to stand before me forever’” (Jeremiah 35:18).
“On the threshold of the Gospel appears Anna, the daughter of Phanuel, the wife of one husband, and a woman who was always fasting (Luke 2:36-37). Long- continued chastity and persistent fasting welcomed a Virgin and her Lord.”
“His forerunner and herald, John, fed on locusts and wild honey (Mark 1:6), not on meat; and the hermits of the desert and the monks in their cells, at first used the same sustenance. But the Lord Himself consecrated His baptism by a forty days’ fast (Matthew 4:2), and He taught us that the more violent devils couldn’t be overcome, except by prayer and fasting (Matthew 17:21). Cornelius the centurion was found worthy through alms-giving and frequent fasts to receive the gift of the Holy Spirit before baptism” (Acts 10:4).
