Waiting for Communion Holy Saturday

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Waiting. How did Jesus’ disciples feel on that dark Saturday after Jesus was crucified?

Remembering the emptiness, grief, fear, disbelief, and irrational hope I felt after my dad’s death, I imagined this response.

Neil Berg’s rock opera The 12 imagines that day not as quiet but filled with fear, fighting, doubt, and love. Berg has Peter, Mary Magdalene, John, and the others express their grief through powerful rock and roll music.
