Reflections On The Journey



Easter Sunday - He Is Risen

Posted on April 17, 2022 at 7:15 AM

What a joyful day this is! Even if the weather in Minnesota is a bit on the cool side, I am rejoicing! The pain of Good Friday has passed, and the waiting is over. Jesus is risen from the dead!


My favorite story surrounding the resurrection is the one in Luke 24, on the road to Emmaus. (Luke 24:13-35) The despondent disciples were so disheartened after the shock of Jesus’ death. They didn’t believe the women who went to the tomb and reported that Jesus had been raised, and they walked home in sorrow. It took the words of a stranger, actually Jesus, explaining everything in Scripture that pointed toward him, and a Eucharistic meal, for them to recognize Jesus and realize that yes, He has risen!


Over the years, I too often did not recognize Jesus in the things around me, or even in the words of Scripture. It has taken me years of experiencing little things (perhaps little miracles?) in life and diligently studying the Word of God to truly believe. And since I am human, I have lapses all the time.


But today, I believe! Jesus died for me, and he rose for me! So today I will celebrate this precious gift. And I pray that you, too, will recognize Jesus in your life, and celebrate the blessing of his rising for you.


Have a blessed Easter Sunday!
