An Easter Encounter
Roll the stones away
If Easter and the Resurrection are to be alive in our times and lives, it is crucial for us to become an Easter People in these unbelievably difficult times in which we live. We know them, we can feel them and we can hear the cries of our suffering sisters and brothers.
Allow the Resurrection experience to be present. Feel the stone being moved from the entrance of the tomb. Rejoice Jesus is freed. What great hope is ours! Our great challenge is to be transformed by the Resurrection! As we experience the stone being removed from the tomb, consider removing the stones that bind our lives and prevent us from being an Easter People.
The Easter path is mysterious and it is ours to navigate by rolling away stone upon stone. Then freedom can emerge as we become transformed, bringing Easter Hope, Joy and Love wherever we are, and to all beings that we encounter.
Easter hope is here
Stone upon stone rolled away
Joy and love live here
