S. J. Masson, a new Patheos blogger at Hawkeye, has written a wide-ranging, thought-provoking post that you should read for Good Friday. He begins by pointing out an allusion to the Cross made by J. R. R. Tolkien in a footnote to Lord of the Rings. He then reflects on the symbolism of this time of year, just after the equinox, when light begins to prevail over darkness. And he then explores the meaning of the darkness that came over the land when Christ was on the Cross.
I have some excerpts after the jump, but you need to read the whole post.
