Easter is the most awesome holiday. Aside from a bunch of food and candy, its true meaning hasn’t yet disappeared under an avalanche of modern materialistic misdirection. Easter is still the day of Christ’s resurrection, and the only countdown we endure are our own self-inflicted personal disciplines of Lent. We haven’t junked it up with so many “to-do’s” that its arrival is greeted with exhaustion rather than exhilaration. The hardest part is keeping our granddaughter from showing off the frills on the backside of her tights during Mass. We can welcome Him back into our lives. And that’s what it’s all about.
I hope you will find five minutes of quiet time today to take those deep breaths, and just sit there quietly enjoying the fact that the God of the Universe is on your side for another year. He doesn’t ask for much, just your love. And what he gives in return is just…whoa.
“And behold, I am with you always, until the end of the age.” Mt 28:20
