"A little while and ye shall not see me, and again a little while and ye shall see me," repeated several times, gives the impression that this is an important phrase, meant to be repeated. So do we hear the Gospel proclaimed Sunday after Sunday. Jesus, who was taken away and crucified after a little while, was then raised from the dead after another little while. This also gives confidence for Christian life, with its little whiles of sorrow. All trouble and darkness shall be followed, in a little while, with abiding joy. This knowledge provides courage for life. The sermon.
