The Resurrection is about the persistence of life and love–God’s persistence and an invitation to us. As we reflect on the Resurrection and Christ’s abiding and loving presence with us, perhaps we could consider a few questions.
Do we see signs of God’s presence, the presence of the Spirit of Christ, in the world around us, or do we live more on the surface level of things? Do we let the word of God sink deeply into us, as rain permeates the earth, helping us to see the Spirit’s presence in our life, or do we simply let life’s events flow over us without much thought or reflection?
Do we see life as a series of blessings, or simply the passage of time? Do we notice and pay attention to the present moment, or do we focus more on the next item on our to-do list? Can we slow down interiorly in a fast-moving world?
The resurrected Christ calls us to look at the world through new eyes, and to live more intentionally the life of the Spirit. May the blessings of Resurrection be with you. Happy Easter!
“The Lord is truly risen, alleluia. To him be glory and power for all the ages of eternity, alleluia, alleluia.” (Entrance antiphon for Easter Sunday)
