Because today is Monday, we have a new reflection for the week.
Believe it or not, it’s still Easter. The liturgical season celebrating Jesus’s rising from the dead is still in swing. How have you celebrated it? And I don’t mean how did you celebrate Easter Sunday all those weeks ago, probably by going to Mass and maybe eating a few jellybeans, but something else. How have you let the joy and hope of the Risen One influence your life? The Resurrection, as you know, changes everything. It tells us that life is stronger than death. That love is stronger than hatred. That hope is stronger than despair. That suffering is never the last word. And that nothing is impossible with God. But do you believe that? Maybe this week, as you pray your examen, you can ask yourself: Do I really believe in those Easter messages? And what difference have they made in my life?
