Day 38 – Advice on Ashes

Seven years ago on Maundy Thursday, my father’s ashes arrived unexpectedly on our doorstep. “Human Remains” was the first clue. What to do? I took them to church and met with a priest. She suggested I let them hide and rest buried for a while behind the luscious chapel greens.

She continued, “After you read Noah’s story during the Vigil, you can resurrect them. By then what to do next will be clear.”
