~ The Resurrection and The Life ~ BIBLE IN MY LANGUAGE ~ This verse reminds me of my father and younger brother who have both died. They used to quote this verse together often. Naturally, it is a favorite of mine.
Cyprian, De bono patientiae, the disturbances of Good Friday signify creation's distress over the death of its Creator. The sun in particular withdraws its rays to look away, lest it be forced to gaze upon the crime of Jesus' enemies.
