Today we start the Last week of the Easter season. Fifty days is a long time.
This is indeed the longest period of the liturgical year.
There is a very good reason for this.
Without Easter, there would be no Christian Faith.
Dealing with death… Evil… Disappointments… the quest for unconditional acceptance and love and so many other things have been a very important part of the quest of humanity for as long as we have been on this planet.
Jesus did really die and rise. His story was not invented to fill in the gaps for us.
The truth of the resurrection is indeed reassuring and leads to the fulfilment of the deepest years of our hearts.
The resurrection gives the great reassurance that Jesus was right.
He is truly our way our truth our life!
