I Love Easter

Lent gets to be a real drag around the third week of March.

But Easter! He is risen! Death couldn't hold him! You can't kill him twice! Somehow the burdens of life are lighter because everything He said is true. Because He is risen, everything has meaning.

As we read at Mass tonight, "What would life have meant to us if Christ had not come?" I had never, ever thought of that before.

He is risen. Peter, when he heard, rushed over to the grave -- Peter, who denied him three times, and must have hated himself for it, found a purpose in that empty tomb. And Jesus came to him, looked him in the eye and said, "Do you love me? Feed my sheep."

What kind of love IS this?

Innocence restored. Who wouldn't give his entire life to have his innocence restored?
