A Celebration of the Risen Christ
“Listen the time has come.” (Jn. 16:32)
Easter Greetings and Blessings to All of You:
This morning, I woke up just before the sun rise, entered my outdoor chapel for a time of prayer and breaking of the bread; a celebration of the Risen Christ.
As I lit candles and prepared the table, the birds provided a nice back drop of music with their calls and whistles.
As I began to pray, the message was to “Listen.”
Less than a minute later, off the in the distance, I heard a neighbor welcoming the new dawn and proclaiming, “How Great Thou Art.” This song of praise, combined with the birds was like attending an outdoor concert.
“The sun rose so high on that Sunday morn’.
My clothes were white and dazzling, not a stitch was torn.
In the sleep I awoke to a brand new me.
Who Is It That You Look For? Is it I, He?”
(DMOL, Patricia A. Zorn, pg.57)
Let us have a moment of reflection, as we revisit a passage taken from the Book of Matthew:
“As Sunday morning was dawning, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to look at the tomb.
Suddenly there was a violent earthquake; an angel came down from heaven, rolled the stone away, and sat on it. His appearance was like lightning, and his clothes were white as snow.
The guards were so afraid that they trembled and became slain in the Spirit.
The angel spoke to both Mary’s: You must not be afraid, he said. I know you are looking for Jesus. He is not here. He has been raised.
You and I have reached the finish line for this part of our liturgical, but as always there is more to come.
Thanks for traveling with me this during this awesome Season of Lent & Easter.
Did you find the one you were searching for?
Have you learned a few things along the way?
God has revealed so much and the good news is “we have moved from suffering to health and from sorrow to peace. Tears have stopped flowing and hope is growing.”
On this Easter morn’, “Rise, walk and be; sharing the most excellent part of yourself.”
“God, your Light is greater than the brightest star. Your Spirit awakens all things. All that springs to life, your peaceful presence brings!”
(Awakening the Inner Ticker of Life, pg. 77)
