Death no longer has the power to shock us. We know what to do, what is expected, how to behave. What has the power to shock us is life – the unpredictable, risky, and Spirit-filled life toward which Jesus’ resurrection points us. His risen life lived in us should alarm, terrify, and amaze us. That is the life we proclaim at Easter. That is the life which will rouse us from death.
-Br. James Koester, SSJE
