Luke 24: 4-8
The angel gives us certainty, hope and courage. At last we hear, and can know with absolute certainty,
The Lord has risen indeed! We are reminded how forgetful we can be of all we have already received: the past, all the clues it gives, the messages it offers, the evidence of graces poured out, all there is that can contribute creatively to any situation in the present. We are challenged, too. “Why look among the dead …. ?” At times, we cling to what is moribund, sterile and hopeless simply because it is safe, habitual or what is expected. But enough for now: can you really take it in, and can you let your mouth bloom, your heart sing?
Prayer: “Lord, thank you for the hope of Easter. May I sing your praises.”
