And, behold
the curtain of the temple
was torn in two.......
[Matthew 27:51]
*************************
"Lord?"

[SILENCE]

"What: are You not
TALKING to me,
again?"

[SILENCE]

"What did I do, NOW?"

[SILENCE.]

"Oy, Lord.
I think I liked You
better, when You were
behind that VEIL!"

"DID you, My child?"

"Huh? Oh! You're there?"

[SMILE. NOD.]

"Uh, not really.
You were always
Big and Angry."

[NOD.]

"I was scared of You:
the Jewish God."

"Why, child."

"Why Y'ur JEWISH,
Lord? Well, how
should I KNOW?
You PICKED IT!"

[CHUCKLE.]

"Why was I SCARED 'a
You?"

[NOD.]

"'Cuz, they TOLD me
so, THAT'S why!"

[NOD.]

"Well.......it WORKED!"

[PATIENT NOD.]

"Hey, Lord;
remember that time
I dropped my little
Torah, on the floor,
when I was a kid?
REMEMBER, Lord:
it was covered in
that little
blue SILK?""

"Yes, child.
I remember."

"I thought I should
fast for 40 days
and 40 nights."

"Did you, My beloved?"

"Uh, uh.
I was afraid to tell
my Mom."

[SMILE.]

"What would she have
said, child?"

"Oh, probably:
'Don't WORRY about it,
Julbie!
He's not MAD at you!'"

(silence)

"Then, why aren't
you listening now,
child?"

"WHAT, Lord?
That Y'ur not
MAD at me?
But, I thought......"

"Read My Word, beloved."

"What: this part?

The oracle of the word
of the Lord to Israel
by Malachi.
I have loved you,
says the Lord.
[Malachi 1:1-2]

(squirm)
That's too personal,
Lord. Like I said,
I kind'a liked You
better, when You
were behind that
tall curtain."

"Yes, I know."

"Maybe, a lot of
people did.
(thoughtful silence)
And, still do.
Maybe, they still
do, Lord."

[NOD.]

"If You're Big,
and Scary, and
Distant......"

"Then what, child?"

"Well.....then, they
don't have to
DEAL with You."

"Ah, but they do, child!
They do."
**************************
And Jesus cried again
with a loud voice
and yeilded up His spirit.
And behold,
the curtain of the temple
was torn in two,
from top to bottom;
and the earth shook,
and the rocks were split....
[Matthew 27:50-51]
