The Risen Christ

Easter time reminds us that we are free because Christ is risen.  In his now immortal body, the risen Jesus dominates the limits that still bind us: space, time, death itself.  But even with our still limited freedom, the Spirit given us by the risen Christ moves us to act for good purposes and to live lovingly.  Cooperating with the risen Christ gives us a share in his glory in the life to come and in his joy in this life.

The grace of Easter is clear when we have the courage to use our freedom in the midst of worries and constraints.
