Easter Reflection

“Then go quickly and tell his disciples: ‘He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him.’ Now I have told you.”

Matthew 28:7

The Cross and Resurrection assure us that God never gives up on us, even when we give up on ourselves. In considering the Resurrection, popular writer Father Ron Rolheiser reminds us: “What the Resurrection of Jesus promises is that things can always be new again. It’s never too late to start over. Nothing is irrevocable. No betrayal is final. No sin is unforgivable. Every form of death can be overcome. There isn’t any loss that can’t be redeemed.”

May the Joy and Hope of the Resurrection be yours this Easter and always!

An Easter Prayer

Living God, present to us and in us,

At Easter you spoke your “Yes” to the world and in so doing

you gifted us with faith, hope and love.

Through our celebration of Holy Week we ask you to

Deepen our faith, so that we may trust that you are with us in all we do

Strengthen our hope, so that we may continue to walk with you

Enliven our love, so that others may come to know

that we are indeed an Easter people and that alleluia is our song.

We make this prayer through Christ our Lord. Amen
