Joseph showed his generosity by giving Jesus his own tomb. This was his sacred possession. To those around Jesus, this seemed so final.
|Jesus is laid in the tomb|
- Do I give up things freely to others and expect nothing in return?
- How do I deal with emptiness and loneliness?
- How do I say goodbye and let go?
- Do I blame my hurt on God or others?
- Are there any relationships that I have buried and would rather forget about?
- Can I reach out and work through the problems?
- What are some of the things which I need to do in order to be closer to you?
Take a moment in the silence of your heart to think of all those who are dying and those who have died and offer then up to God.
