We proclaim with joy the Risen Christ! This simple, yet most profound statement is a message I have been imparting to students over these last two weeks. It is a bold, strong and a most affirming testament to our faith. Our Lord Jesus Christ, who is the incarnate word of God, who came and dwelt amongst us, who suffered, died on the Cross and rose again, to be seated at the right of the Father, and who is the source of our salvation and redemption and the glorious manifestation of eternal life, is the Christ of our faith.
But what does Easter mean? I have been challenging my students to think about this question. More than any other seasonal celebrations in our liturgical calendar, Easter calls us to be reflective and to make the Easter narrative a deeply personal one. The resurrection must resonate in our lives.
Jesus helps us to see the daily resurrections that can transform our world and ourselves. This Easter we can catch a glimpse of the Risen Christ and our “risen selves” by even the simplest of gestures. . . helping to transform another's hurt into forgiveness, transforming our fragile planet into a world of beauty, freeing ourselves from anything which might hold us back from entering into a full relationship with our God.
The resurrection is about allowing ourselves and others to live “alleluias” (Praise the Lord!) every day of our lives. It is believing we are all one, united in our Lord. It is about hope and being set free. And, yes, it is about celebrating joyously our faith.
