IN EGET SAPIEN VITAE

ALLELUIA!   ALLELUIA!   ALLELUIA!

 

This joyous refrain of Alleluia is song through all the Christian Churches throughout the world as we celebrate the resurrection of our Savior Jesus Christ!  It is polar opposite of what we have been hearing in the songs and prayers during Lent – death, mercy, repentance.  We go from the darkness of the tomb to resurrection light!

 

In Jesus’ resurrection we find hope of our own resurrection.  But we don’t have to wait for the “final” resurrection.  Resurrection begins the moment we climb out of whatever hole or tomb we may be in; the minute we begin to break free of whatever is holding us back, the minute we begin to rise above whatever is holding us down.   And our wounds? They are not taken away but they become sources of hope for others that they too, can have resurrection in their life.

 

Start today to resurrect those things in your life that bring peace, serenity, faith, trust, courage and joy.  Today’s society is fearful and many act out of their fear.  This can lead to further darkness.  But in the resurrection of Jesus we are meant to be people of the Light!  Jesus will NOT let us be overcome as long as we have faith and seek him.

 

The cold, hard brutality of death and darkness cannot contain the power of God!  

 

We need to surround ourselves with people and things that promote light. Look around for the signs of the Risen Lord. Night is indeed over. Morning has broken and we have reason to sing “Alleluia!”

 

Have a blessed Easter!

 

ALLELUIA!   ALLELUIA!   ALLELUIA!
