Good News

Today's card is the Six of Fire: Victory! Good news is on its way! Public recognition. This is a really great card for Holy Week, and it landed right on Maundy Thursday.

That Thursday, things weren't looking good for Jesus, King of the Jews. He was going to trial. Last week he was hailed as a hero, this week he's facing the death penalty. Pontius Pilate might pardon someone, but it wasn't likely to be Jesus. 

So how can good news be on the way? Victory? Public recognition? Jesus was facing the prospect of a gruesome death. 

But we all know how it turned out: 

On the third day he rose again 
in accordance with the Scriptures; 
he ascended into heaven 
and is seated at the right hand of the Father.*

Good news, indeed.

In love and light,
