Imprint of Jesus on snowy wooden cross

April 15, 2023 by Carol Elaine Loperena

The Aftermath of Easter

Jesus' outstretched arms on the cross remind us how big His love is for all.

How have things been going for you now that Easter is over?

Or should I instead say, "How are things going, since you know Easter is just the beginning?

It's easy to establish a sense of finality, once we celebrate the events of the resurrection. And that finality can sometimes lead us to feel like Easter will follow us through the rest of the year until we arrive at Advent, to start the new Christian year.

Instead, why not take a few minutes to mobilize yourself for reflection, and then action? Receiving the good news that Jesus is alive, and alive in us, can propel us into a bolder approach to the days that come.

We can evaluate every single thing that happens in our lives and world around us in a new context.

Take a moment to consider this.
