Waking to New Life

Alleluia! Christ is Risen! He is risen indeed!

One of the (many) things I love about being Catholic is that Easter is not just one day.  It's a whole week, followed by another six weeks of joy of the risen Christ, culminating in another celebration, the "birthday" of the Church on Pentecost.  When celebrating the single greatest event in human history, the conquering of mankind's greatest, common foes--sin and death--by the God Man who came among us, celebrating for one day, or even a few days, simply will not do.  But that is not why I wanted to write today, so I'll save a few more thoughts on that for later.

Today, Easter Monday, I wanted to share a spot that Michael Voris from did last week, reflecting on the sheer power of the Resurrection, and speculating on what Christ's personal experience must have been like as his lifeless body was reanimated to a glorified, immortal state, and the unimaginable joy that must have been shared when he first greeted his mother, whose fiat had allowed him to take on him human flesh.
