Christ is risen!
We have come to the merry, merry month of May, continuing our celebration of the Paschal Light and the renewal which Christ’s Resurrection and victory over sin and death brings to our lives. The 50 day Paschal season culminates in the feast of Pentecost and the remembrance and realization of the Holy Spirit’s entrance into our lives. Winter has yielded to springtime; summer and autumn harvests lie ahead, on earth and in our lives.
And may sin be left behind, which would reintroduce the deathly chill of spiritual winter! Sadly, this almost always happens, doesn’t it?.
But this cycle will broken one Day; the Lord Jesus Christ will come and call us into His glorious Presence. May the Lord find us prepared!
