H.B. & Hw.


Easter is God's total involvement in our lives. Our

daily lives reveal the divine dimension. There is

nothing insignificant in life therefore, be it ever so

plain, be it ever so ordinary. It is a glimpse of divinity

and we call it the Paschal mystery.


Peter claims to be a witness to the Paschal mystery of

God's reality with us, through us and in us. Mary

Magdalen and the disciples experience the Easter

impact, never really previously appreciated. And we in

our turn can only corroborate the Easter meaning of life.

"This is the work of the Lord, a marvel in our eyes."


This Easter moment is very special. It is an experience

that gives us new insight  into the meaning of our

precious lives. Our Easter moment transforms us,

transforms us to such an extent that nothing can ever be

the same again. We touch the beyond.


New insight dawns, insight beyond all previous

experience. It is the Easter experience, obviously

special to Easter. It is the basis of faith. It is challenge

to spiritual growth and it is the rediscovery of our

personal vocation. We believe in this new reality. It is

our motivation in all we think and say and do. The God

of universe is totally invested in our every living

feature. Easter is the meaning of our every breathing

moment. Christ has died, Christ is risen, Christ will

come again. The glorious mystery that is ours to live

every day, every hour, every moment now and forever.
