When we get through this, though, will we have let coronatide change us? Will we know that the resurrection has changed us, and keeps changing us? Or will we try to grab back those things we’ve had to let go of, even if they don’t actually give us life, even as we’re noticing now that they’re not essential?
In our Lord choosing to give up his last breath, feeling abandoned by God, having been betrayed by one of his best friends, the world has been forever changed.
