The Light of Easter Joy

In my email earlier this week was a great devotional message.

(As always, thanks to St. Matthew, my hometown church, for sending these!!)

It talked about the importance of being faithful witnesses regarding Jesus' death and resurrection. With the continued secularization of American society - and marginalization of Christianity - I believe this responsibility is increasingly crucial. We typically equate witnessing with words...but this message closed with a reminder about the importance of actions: Live your life in the light of your Easter joy. People will notice.

How true...and a great reminder.

It called to mind this quote I found a few years back, attributed to Pope John Paul II: "Do not abandon yourselves to despair. We are the Easter people and hallelujah is our song." Amen!
