Some Easters are joyous.
Others are a reminder that Jesus has indeed risen and defeated death, but the battle is still on. This Easter is one of them. Both the state of this country and the state of this diocese show there’s much work to do.
To borrow the secular phrase that “all politics is local,” you could say that all faith is local. There are some local bright spots, but there’s still much “room for improvement.”
Amending yesterday’s post to: there’s still too much self…..self-appointed, self-proclaimed, self-complacent….too much self-will.
What to do but lift the situation up in prayer and let God take care of the situation.
So the Easter Alleluia rings out, and despite all that’s happening, will in the end triumph.
