Easter Sunday, March 31, 2024: On this day, can we, like Mary, run and share the news of Jesus’ presence in our world?



Dr. C. Vanessa White offers a reflection on the power of women's voices proclaiming the Good News then and now:

 

"If women doubt their value, this telling and retelling of the resurrection story reaffirms the power of a women’s voice - for it was Mary’s voice that first testified to the Resurrection and whose story continues today...


On this day, can we, like Mary, run and share the news of Jesus’ presence in our world? In spite of our doubts and fears, do we have the strength, the fortitude, the faith to go out like Mary and the disciples and share the news that Jesus has risen? This Good News can change our hearts and change the world, if only we believe."

 



Dr. C. Vanessa White is Associate Professor of Spirituality and Ministry as well as the Director of the Certificate in Black Theology and Ministry at Catholic Theological Union.



Reflection #2 by Dr. Layla A. Karst

"We are an Easter people, a community of missionary disciples, beloved of God and witnesses to the resurrection.


Ours is a church that is called to be radically inclusive.


Our Easter joy is abundant enough to share with all and still have more left over.


Our joy is deep enough to hold grief and sorrow and anger and doubt without fear. We are recognizable by our joy, yes, but also by our wounds, and by the Spirit within us that greets all with a word of peace."

 

Dr. Layla A. Karst is an assistant professor in the department of Theological Studies at Loyola Marymount University where she teaches and writes at the intersection of liturgy and ecclesiology.


Happy Easter dear Sisters and Brothers.
