The Holy Saturday of Sundays
Today, the Sunday between Ascension Thursday and Pentecost, strikes me as the Holy Saturday of Sundays. In many ways I imagine the disciples experienced similar feelings yet had grown deeper in their faith because of Easter and Jesus' resurrection from the dead. Still, their sorrow must have been real in that could not see Him as they had previously. Yet He had promised He would send the Holy Spirit and as His word has been fulfilled before the disciples had only to trust anew.
