I think as we get older this day takes on deeper and deeper yearning and curiosity about the other side. In our culture even horror movies distance themselves from the dead. We just don’t want to believe one day our turn will come. I read a book recently about a Catholic priest who helps “caught” souls get to the other side. They were for whatever reason hesitant to move on. Don’t know what to make of it exactly but it was really interesting.

So, so good, Kristin. This Evangelical-with-no-ties-to-liturgy is grateful for a glimpse of the origins and meanings behind many long lost and forgotten practices. Oh, that they would return!

In the meantime, your notes abou the triduum of Hallowmas will have to do as a small place (however virtual) of recalibration and encouragement. Thank you!
