"The story of Easter is the story of God's wonderful window of divine surprise." (Carl Knudsen) The Birth of the Son of God was a WOW moment in the history of the world. So to, Easter is a WOW moment that has changed the world of human beings forever. For us, personally, our moment of baptism was a WOW moment. Every time we receive forgiveness of our sins and the gift of his Body and Blood, God surprises us with his divine mercy and love.  We remember another WOW moment, the coming of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost and our Confirmation. For those who are sacramentally married, God broke through in your individual lives and sealed you in his love. As a priest and Bishop, my ordinations were such moments.  How should you and  I response to each of these WOW moments? Gratitude, love, commitment and witnessing.
