Happy Easter! And, by the way, you can say that every day for the next few weeks, because Easter is a whole liturgical season. For the next 50 days, until Pentecost, technically it’s Easter. And it makes sense to give it a 50-day celebration. Because Easter is the main message of Christianity. What does that mean? Well, first it means that Christ has risen from the dead. That’s the central meaning and that alone would be enough to meditate on for 50 days.
But also that hope always triumphs over despair, love always triumphs over hatred, life always triumphs over death and suffering is never the last word. So one question in this Easter season is where have you experienced your own Easters? Where have you seen your own resurrections? Maybe you can think about that during your examen this Easter.
