The Paschal Mystery

Two weeks on, the inspiration continues.

And she said, “They have taken the Lord from the tomb, and we don’t know where they put him.”

What does it mean?

I come back around to these questions every year, reflecting anew.

It’s not only for a day, or a weekend, not just a holiday. It’s to mark a new beginning, a fresh start, with any luck. It’s a time to reset, on the path forward for a better life each day.

Francis puts it this way (via Twitter, no less!):

“As we contemplate Christ’s empty tomb, let us renew our belief that nothing is lost with Him!” The inspiration is simple, in my view. Simple questions, not to answer outright, but to prompt further contemplation. Throughout the season, throughout the year, asking and acting on simple purpose. To be better, to follow what he taught the world, what he meant for humanity.

How can we make small changes to be a better person?

How did it happen? How does it happen?

What were the core lessons he taught? What happens next?

What can we learn not only from him, but from insights shared about the people around him, his friends, those who followed him.

One word: ALLELUIA.
