April 20th, Easter

He is Risen!

“For they did not understand the scripture that he had to rise from the dead.”  John 20:9

We can be certain that the Resurrection is a fact that has happened. The Risen body of Jesus Christ has become present in us, the body of Christ. Nothing else could possibly explain what kept those disparate people, the first disciples, together in the days and years that followed Christ’s death. It was not some idea or ideal that unified them; it was the event of Christ’s presence in their midst. Even when threatened by perils and persecution, the early Church stayed together because of the undeniable fact that the Risen Jesus had made himself present bodily to his followers in all their weakness, confusion and fear. He drew forth from them Holy Communion. Only the bodily resurrection can effect such a miracle of unity, courage and fidelity.

A Happy and Joy filled Easter to you all!
