A Sunday Reflection

Easter Sunday (Cycle C)

The women arrive at the tomb and find that the stone has been moved. The vision of the angels who announce the resurrection terrifies them. But their message is one of joy and hope: “Why do you seek the living One among the dead? He is not here; He has been raised” (Lk 24: 5-6). Jesus Christ is risen! He is risen indeed!

Today the Church rejoices in the glory of the triumph of the Lord. Christ has overcome death and his resurrection is a pledge of our own resurrection. This is the Good News we are called to proclaim. May the Lord’s resurrection fill you with joy and new hope in the promises of God.

God bless you! Happy Easter!

Fr. Luis R. Largaespada

Passion and Triumph

We have made the journey together. The Lord has crossed to the other side, has freed us, fed us, redeemed us and given us new life, Eternal Life. Today, then, let us ask ourselves if that Passion Christ feels for us is the same passion we feel for Him. If this giving Himself for us is matched by giving ourselves wholeheartedly to Him. If this God who makes everything new can make our lives new in Him… and that depends on us. Easter is the time to believe the God who lives and wants us alive, as Pope Francis says in the Apostolic Exhortation Christus vivit.

This Easter, let us take time to reflect what it means to be alive. Let it not be limited to the ability to breathe, but that it may have in us the same effect it had on Nicodemus, so that we may be reborn of water and the Spirit every day, and be his witnesses in a world that most of the time only seems to be surviving. Let us place all our time, talent and money on that which gives us full and abundant life, that we may little by little change every corner of our society, like the leaven transforms the dough. With Christ all things are possible!
