40 days (and nights)

September 22, 2019

we had the 40th day death anniversary of my mother-in-law today. when i researched why the number 40 was such a big thing Biblically (e.g. Jesus in the desert, Noah and the flood), it had something to do with purification in the Torah.  The real question is where did that practice originate from?

maybe it was serendipity that today was also the last mass of a Filipino priest in our parish. a new chapter?  who know?  all that i’m certain about is the mind is skilled in finding patterns…
