Christ is risen! On Friday, all hope was lost. On Saturday, there was much weeping. On Sunday, they woke up early to anoint the body for burial, but he was not there. (He was not there!) The grave was empty. They thought they were burying Jesus, but really they were planting him. (They were planting him!) They thought they were going to anoint death, but really God was calling them to proclaim the gospel of Life. This is what we celebrate at Easter. And Easter is not just one day--- Easter is an entire season (Eastertide). Fifty days to proclaim that Jesus is alive and well. (Jesus is alive and well!) They thought they were burying him, but really they were planting him. And now God's love and hope are pouring back into the world. "The Lord is risen!" (He is risen indeed!)

 

Only the person who has experienced it can believe what the love of Jesus Christ really is. 

(Bernard of Clairvaux)
