EASTER JOY: Keep the Joy Alive

Easter is certainly the most important feast of the Christian year! It is so important that the church sets aside a full fifty days to celebrate Jesus’ victory over sin and death. Not many of us are used to sustaining an "Easter spirit" of celebration all the way to Pentecost.

Consider this visual meditation as one way of sustaining the "Easter Spirit." Lifeteen offers the following on the great "I AM."

"How is it possible to find Jesus without Mary, since Jesus himself did not come to us except with the consent of Mary! . . . We reach Jesus but through Mary, as Jesus came to us but through Mary." (Spirit 1, 142)
Blessed William Joseph Chaminade
