Alleluia is a pure and perfect word. It is the song that contains all songs as a pure and perfect seed. It is the song we sing when all words and all letters fall short before the eternal glory of Jesus Christ the King.
To live as if death no longer existed is to live in the power of the Resurrection daily. It means that death has no victory because the Cross is our true victory. When we live in the Resurrection we don’t have to look any further for answers to “death” in our life. Death has already been answered by the victory of the cross.
Do we love the Lord enough to feed and tend all the lambs and sheep entrusted to our care? As pastors and leaders given authority over people who may not be our own children or from our own community, ministry or parish, or who may not be of our own faith, what is our attitude towards them?
Understanding completely how the resurrection happened is not necessary to trust in the mystery. We trust that one day he will raise us up to his heavenly kingdom. Trusting in the Lord’s mysteries is where we find peace and happiness.
Discovering our vocation is found in an intentional, daily relationship with God. It is more than just knowing the state of life He desires us to live in within the body of the Church (married, single, religious), it is ultimately about discovering ourselves each and every day found most perfectly in Him alone.
Our progress in the Christian life may seem slow—sometimes pitifully slow—but limping on the way is far better than racing towards destruction. For one who limps along the way, even though he makes just a little progress, is approaching his destination; but if one walks off the way, the faster he goes the further he gets from his destination.
