The following was shared throughout the office by Joan Callahan, one of our Faith Formation Coordinators. I would like to also share it with you all.
“He has risen, he is not here...he is going before you…”
“The dynamism of the Easter mystery
is at the heart of our Christian faith.
True encounter with Christ liberates something in us,
a power that we did not know we had,
a hope, a capacity for life, resilience, an ability to bounce back
when we thought we were completely defeated,
a capacity to grow and change,
a power of creative transformation…
the dynamism of Love.
Love comes out of God and gathers us to God
in order to pour itself back into God through all of us…
we all become doors and windows through which God shines…”
May this Easter season deepen our awareness of God’s Love
alive in ourselves, our loved ones
and all those whom we encounter.
May we be attentive to that Love
and choose to allow it to transform
our attitudes, our actions, our world.
Wishing you a Joyful, Hopeful Easter Season
