Women of the Passion (eight)

Dawning.

You return, expectant of nothing more than the task of loving service to anoint the departed. You have been there through it all, now is the final moment as the earth turns to the sun in the quietness of the morning after, suddenly unprepared.

And very early on the first day of the week, when the sun had risen, they went to the tomb.

Mark 16:2

Women of the Passion (six)

Preparing.

Still you follow, unwavering.  Quietly you defy authority watching, waiting for the right moment, for swords have no power here.  Your peaceful action, begins the silent revolution-echo through the centuries.  Keep watch.  

 

The women who had come with him from Galilee followed, and they saw the tomb and how his body was laid. 

Luke 23:55
