Mathew 28: 8-15

Easter calls us beyond ourselves, our wants, our fears. Christ’s rising from the dead demands a change in attitude, in perspective, in the way we approach the complexities and demands of the world. The Resurrection pulls us out of our own “tombs” of indifference and cynicism, of self-centeredness. There was a new fond energy in the disciples when they heard the news from the women. There was joy in their hearts of the possibility that he was back with them. And that joy can be ours if we keep going back to the center – Jesus.
