Easter: “Why Look for the Living Among the Dead?”

“Jesus no longer belongs to the past but lives in the present and is projected toward the future; Jesus is the everlasting “today” of God. This is how the newness of God appears to the women, the disciples, and all of us: as victory over sin, evil, and death – over everything that crushes life and makes it seem less human. And this is a message meant for me and for you, dear sister, you, dear brother. How often does Love have to tell us, “Why do you look for the living among the dead?” Our daily problems and worries can wrap us up in ourselves, in sadness and bitterness…and that is where death is. That is not the place to look for the One who is alive!”

    For all that we may quibble with some of his misunderstandings of our GLBTQ people and our loving relationships, I do hope to see Pope Francis canonized as “Pope St. Francis of Argentina”, rather quickly after he ascends from his earthly mission. A most happy and glorious and blessed Easter to all of our readers, contributors, and all of their families and loved ones. Dickens’ Tiny Tim pronounced the perfect prayer: “God Bless Us, Every One!”
