Jesus Christ has risen!
Love has triumphed over hatred!
Life has conquered death!
Light has dispelled the darkness!
“Out of love for us, Jesus Christ stripped himself of
His divine glory, emptied himself, took on the form
of a slave and humbled himself even to death, death
on a cross. For this reason God exalted him and
made him Lord of the universe. Jesus is Lord”!
Pope Francis said.
The Risen Lord is present everywhere through His Spirit. He is present in you and in me. We need to open our hearts with the lens of faith. In baptism we have received this faith. Jesus himself said “I am with you always”. Mt.28:20. Jesus speaks these same words to us today, and he proves them to be true every day in Holy Communion. He lives in our heart. The power of his love is above all. The Word of God says “Nothing can separate us from the love of God”.Rom.8:38-39. The disciples experienced the power of Jesus in them after His resurrection.
We also need to discover the many different ways of the presence of Jesus Christ. We experience the living presence of Christ as we celebrate the Holy Mass. Every time when, we proclaim the Word of God our hearts are filled with his presence. He wants us to serve him by serving the poor and the needy as he did. This is the challenge, the Risen Lord sets before us during this season. We need to open our hearts with a powerful lens of faith to discover his presence.
May the good news of Jesus’s resurrection fill our hearts with joy and peace!
Wish you all a blessed Easter!
