National Geographic had a feature on The Gospel of Judas, a couple of nights ago. How Judas'part in Jesus' death was essential. Without Judas, the divine spark that was Jesus would not have been able to tear free of this earthly flesh...

I think of this and read about the passing away of Eileen's father. I have started so many letters with Dear Eileen, but never seem to have the right words to say.

And then there's this: I Corinthians 15:53

For this corruptible must put on incorruption and this mortal must put on immortality...

further on in verse 55

O death, where is they sting? O grave, where is thy victory?

And I think of how there is peace in this passing. Safe home at last.
