the curtain in the temple was torn in two.
Jesus cried out and breathed his last.
Then, the centurion praised God and said
"surely this was a righteous man."
The people who had gathered to watch
beat their breasts and went away.
Too little, too late.
It's not too late for any of us.
God reaches out to us every second of every day.
His mercies are new every day.
And twice a year we celebrate and
proclaim God's great love for us.
It's the Christmas story.
It's the Christ story.
