Even those of us who doubt, are accounted for by Him. We are neither forgotten nor forsaken. Pope Benedict reminds us of the fact that Jesus is with us always and walks with us in the minutiae of our lives, no matter how ugly or despicable or doubtful. He died, rose from the dead and yet, continues to accompany us daily.
Jesus’ victory is one that exists in a broken world where many of us continue to suffer.
For those of us who continue to struggle and suffer and grapple with our own darkness, today’s celebration is a reminder that Jesus opens the way to freedom, justice, victory and hope! Just as there is nothing that the light of the sun does not touch, the light of the resurrection touches us all, and illuminates all that is dark within us.
