Our Hope – the Resurrection

The resurrection of the Lord from the dead is a call for resurrection—yours, mine, and everybody’s—from that apathetic Christianity that exists among us today. If we have given ourselves to Jesus Christ, we can give him to others who are in quest of God, the sea of people who go from one place to another seeking, not knowing what they seek. People who hunger for him today, but are confused by a thousand voices in a meaningless sea without any shores, with waves that chase each other without getting anywhere. We can assuage their hunger because we have been baptized in the death and resurrection of Our Lord. We can give them Jesus Christ if we are in love with him—Christ, who is in our midst. ~Catherine Doherty, Our Hope—the Resurrection, from Season of Mercy, Madonna House Publications
