The week before the Resurrection represents, for everyone of us, an opportunity to meditate. We all carry our cross, but how many of us really reach the Golgota?
Have we really asked ourselves how many times during our life we felt the need to shout like Jesus on the Cross: “Eli, Eli, lama Sabahtani?”(“ My Lord, My Lord, why have you abandoned me ?”)?
The Resurrection must fill us with joy, must give us hope so that we may be better with us and with the others. Let´s not forget that deth does not mean the final point which puts an end to life, but merely the comma which separates the two parts of a sentence: the life before the grave and the life beyond the grave.
With light in our hearts and joy in our souls, we will all gather, at midnight, to properly worship the One that has let Himself crucified for our sake.
Jesus has resurrected and may peace be with you!
