Today as we celebrate the feast of Easter, like Mary Magdalene and the Disciples we find the challenge of also seeing and believing the resurrection. There are people who say that there will be no resurrection, that there is nothing after death. When next you hear this, think of springtime. The ground was frozen hard and there was not a sign of life in the fields or on the trees. But now everything is changing. No human power can keep back springtime. Since the day Jesus Christ rose from the dead, the first signs of an eternal springtime have begun to appear. Each of us has met Christians who, despite great suffering that cannot be explained, have continued to believe that death is not the end. These people are signs for us that Jesus Christ has really risen. Who are the “Easter” people you have known.
