Thought of the Day April 2, 2018 He is Risen!

By 9:25 AM

“The Gospel of Easter is very clear: we need to go back there, to see Jesus risen, and to become witnesses of his Resurrection. This is not to go back in time; it is not a kind of nostalgia. It is returning to our first love, in order to receive the fire which Jesus has kindled in the world and to bring that fire to all people, to the very ends of the earth." (Pope Francis) Like the first disciples we need to return to when we first fell in love with Jesus to appreciate the gift of the resurrection. It was in that realization of love that we experienced his mercy and forgiveness, his unconditional acceptance. It was his love that brought us into new live with him. It was the manifestation of that great love that Jesus proclaimed thru his sacrificial death and victorious resurrection. Like the first witnesses of the Risen Christ, we too are to bear witness of his love for us to others. He is risen, alleluia!
