Sixth Sunday of Easter

May 25, 2014

THE BY-PRODUCT OF THE RESURRECTION

The Resurrection tells us that there is always hope. That sin, death, pain, and suffering never have the last word. There is always a second chance, another way, an opportunity for redemption, a happy ending.

And if you have been paying attention, you will also know that the Resurrection contains a couple of promises: two of which we hear in today’s Gospel. 1) That we will not be orphaned; and 2) that we will receive the gifts of the Holy Spirit to teach us everything that we need to know.

So long as we keep the Resurrection alive in our hearts, we will never be alone or without the grace we need to weather the storms that will surely come.
