[Lent ends at sunset today (Black is the colour)]
“By now it was noon. The whole earth became dark, the darkness lasting three hours – a total blackout. The Temple curtain split right down the middle.
Jesus called loudly, ‘Father, I place my life in your hands!’ Then he breathed his last.” Luke 23:43-46 (The Message Bible)
[Easter Vigil starts at sunset (White)]

Let your stone remind you of this question through today and into tomorrow. Does Easter answer the question in any way for you?
