Was there ever a brighter day than the early morning at the tomb

When the women seeking to anoint his body

were dazzled and terrified and then enlightened as they remembered his words?

what were the brightest days in your life?

Were you ever abandoned, lost, seeking only to do what is barely possible

When God’s presence filled you

And dazzled, maybe terrified, you lived again, enlightened as you remembered his words,

“I have conquered death and sin.  Only believe.”

March 31. EASTER – RESURRECTION. There are many religions and belief systems among the people of this world. Less than one third are professed Christians.  Christianity is unique in its belief in a personal God who created out of love, for love.   This God was denied and rejected many times, but in time he himself became human to show once more the way to love. In love God’s Son lived and died, atoning for our human lack of love.  Love remains our byword, a watchword, a password, fraternity, ubuntu. Family life and love designed by God, the creator, is a unique expression and way to spread his love with joy. As Jesus was raised from death to life his followers experienced the unbounded joy of love and friendship, giving and sharing life.  May every believer and family following Christ shout with joy. “THE LORD IS RISEN,  ALLELUIA!” 

Read, reflect, share and pray. They departed quickly from the tomb with fear and great joy and ran to tell his disciples. And behold Jesus met them and said “Hail!” And they came up and took hold of his feet and worshipped him. Mat 28:8-9. Pope Francis:  The New Testament shows us Jesus risen and glorious, present throughout creation by his universal Lordship. In him the fullness of God was pleased to dwell and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of his cross. Col 1:19-20.  LS 99.
