Esperad (Easter Vigil 2020)
On Holy Saturday, the Rev. Javier Almendárez-Bautista asks what it means to wait (esperar) for Easter joy to arrive: “The streets are too quiet for me. Where I long to rejoice as Easter bells ring, all I do is dread the alarm of ambulance sirens. The days flow together; the future seems uncertain. I don’t know how to run and tell the good news of Jesus’s resurrection filled with joy. I feel like the best I can manage is to sit still and wait.”
