Today I’m going to continue with
sharing from Fresh Bread by Joyce Rupp.

“ I may not always have a high in the sky feeling when I celebrate Easter but I do know that they provide quiet reassurances that God keeps raising dead parts of my spirit to life. I have the hope that comes from knowing that risen Jesus is not just a Bible story. He is here, in my very midst. I have known him in to many little Easters to ever doubt that presence. I have been surprised so often, surprised at how simply the risen Lord is near, at how intensely God visits me, surprised at how much hope simple events have given my heart, surprised at how this hopeful God always re-enters my existence through the people around me.”

Today is divine mercy Sunday, let us reflect on how our risen Lord is present in the midst of all the difficult times in our life.
