We have put our own humanity into “quarantine” long before this physical quarantine ever started. We have told ourself and our friends and our children many lies about who and what we are. We have tried to twist reality into what we want it to be, instead of letting reality hit us in the face and recognize that God is really present…in reality…and only in reality.
Are we the same people that encountered the Risen Lord? Have we encountered the Lord? And do we live out of this encounter? Does this encounter shape our entire life?
¿Somos las mismas personas que se encontraron con el Señor resucitado? ¿Nos hemos encontrado con el Señor? ¿Y vivimos de este encuentro? ¿Este encuentro da forma a toda nuestra vida?
Something I hear a lot lately is, “Man, I can’t wait until things go back to normal!” But Easter is not normal. It is not. Easter, the Resurrection of Christ—this is the beginning of something new.
Like Christ, we live this Holy Week face-to-face with the one inevitable: our death.
Como Cristo, vivimos esta Semana Santa cara a cara con la inevitable: nuestra muerte.
