The word Easter is based on the fact that the sun rises in the east.  Considering that we are treated to a glorious and beautiful dawn each morning, it’s as if the natural world is just begging us to soften our skepticism and become increasingly attuned to the miraculous nature of life.  Let’s therefore treat this solemn and holy feast not as some other-worldly in-breaking, but as a friend reminding us that the grace which constantly abounds (Rom 5:20) is our destiny.  May every morning and every moment of every day thus be a resurrection, and may we, through the act of faith in the resurrection, come to know the fullness of life (Jn 10:10).  Ave Crux, Spes Unica!

“Easter” by Gerard Manley Hopkins
