Alleluia! Christ is Risen!
“[Mary Magdalene] wanted to clasp those sacred feet again and remain there in loving contemplation, but Jesus said to her gently: ‘Do not touch me.’ Without doubt the Lord reveals himself and gives himself to the soul that seeks Him, but at the same time he always remains God, the Most High, the Inaccessible: ‘Do not touch me!’ Although admitted to divine intimacy, the soul should not lose the sense of the transcendence of God, and of the infinite distance that lies between the creature and the Creator, between the one who is not on the One who is. Thus, the nearer the soul comes to God, the more it realizes this infinite distance, and together with confidence and love, there is born in it a profound sentiment of reverence for the supreme majesty of God.” ~Fr. Gabriel of St. Mary Magdalene, O.C.D.
The Lord is Risen indeed! Alleluia!
