Happy Easter! We celebrate the amazing gift of Jesus’ resurrection today. A gift which offers us the hope of eternal life. On Saturday of Holy Week the Church offers an ancient homily for reflection in the Liturgy of the Hours. I love this reflection and published it a few years ago on Easter. I offer it to you again today for your Easter nourishment:
“Something strange is happening—there is a great silence on earth today, a great silence and stillness. The whole earth keeps silence because the King is asleep. The earth trembled and is still because God has fallen asleep in the flesh and he has raised up all who have slept ever since the world began. God has died in the flesh and hell trembles with fear.
He has gone to search for our first parent, as for a lost sheep. Greatly
desiring to visit those who live in darkness and in the shadow of death,
he has gone to free from sorrow the captives Adam and Eve, he who is
both God and the son of Eve. The Lord approached them bearing the cross,
the weapon that had won him the victory. At the sight of him Adam, the
first man he had created, struck his breast in terror and cried out to
everyone: ‘My Lord be with you all.’ Christ answered him: ‘And with your
spirit.’ He took him by the hand and raised him up, saying: ‘Awake, O
sleeper, and rise from the dead, and Christ will give you light.’
