John_irvingHere is something for you to ponder on Good Friday.  It was sent to me by Tim Sutherland, Teaching Team Guru at CCC as we prepped for this Easter weekend.  It’s from John Irving’s, A Prayer for Owen Meany:


“I find that Holy Week is draining; no matter how many times I have lived through His crucifixion, my anxiety about His resurrection is undiminished—I am terrified that, this year, it won’t happen; that, that year, it didn’t.  Anyone can be sentimental about the Nativity;  any fool can feel like a Christian at Christmas.  But Easter is the main event; if you don’t believe in the Resurrection, you’re not a believer.”
