Easter, the feast of the Resurrection encourages us to be Resurrection people. The joyful message of the Gospel explains the empty tomb and the experience of Mary Magdalene, Peter and John. Mary Magdalene proclaims her personal experience: “I have seen the Lord.”
As Resurrection people, we are not to lie buried in the tomb of our habits, sins and addictions. It gives us the Good News that no tomb can hold us down anymore. Not the tomb of despair, discouragement, doubt, nor even death. Rather, we are called to live a joyful and peaceful life constantly experiencing the real presence of the Risen Lord in all the events of our lives. “This is the day the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad,” the Psalmist reminds us.
May the Risen Christ charge you with zeal and faith as you go forth in His Name.
A Blessed Easter to you!
