"So you can have life"

     Risen Jesus proclaims eternal life to each of us. 
     And we try to grasp it with our minds, to understand, to comprehend, to penetrate, to feel with our hearts, to enter into the spirit of this revelation.
     It is easier for us particularly now, after having completed forty-day Lent, and Stations of the Cross, Lenten psalms, retreats; now, when the days of Holy Thursday and Good Friday and Holy Saturday and Easter Sunday are behind us.
Now we can manage to understand - although never completely -what it means:  I proclaim immortality to you, because love is eternal.
     So we need to embrace this truth -- and accept it as the simplest certainty -- that we take root in the eternal life with every good day.  With every act of honesty, righteousness, devotion, sacrifice, warmth and smile - with heart felt family life as well as solid professional life.  We take root in immortality with everything that is reasonable, everything that is noble in our lives, because love is eternal, because God is love.
     And Risen Jesus - Son of God and our Brother - is confirmation of this truth.
