Reflection Corner: A Grace-filled Easter
A Grace-filled Easter! Jesus’ death shattered his disciples' hopes and dreams. They had hoped that He was the one to redeem Israel. They saw the cross as defeat and could not understand the empty tomb until the Lord appeared to them. As Christians, we have been blessed by our understanding that Jesus is intimately close to us. How often do we recognize the Lord when He speaks to our hearts and opens His mind to us? Do we allow his words and His Eucharistic presence transform our lives?
Prayer: "May the Lord free us from being Christians without hope, who live as if the Lord were not risen, as if our problems were the centre of our lives." Pope Francis
