This Year in the Catacombs
by Reverend Wendy MacLean
This year we will gather in the catacombs at a safe distance from the shelves of bones and boxes of dusty remains and icons of early saints. We’ll meet at the end of the corridor carved into the earth for burials and blessings. Many saints are interred in this library of ancient prayer. Read the words etched into walls, stop and gaze at the illustrations stained and settled onto rock markers. Time scrolls across the distance from birth to death to resurrection. This year we gather in the catacombs with hands on keyboards as the mysteries of data and drama lead us to the icon at the end of the corridor. Watch for the key and the invitation: Enter.
