The journey of love

A journey of love is a journey that brings us life.  John 10:10: He came so that we may have life to the fullest.

The Easter Sunday Gospel, describes a journey that Mary Magdalene takes to tell everyone about the Risen Christ.  ”He has been raised from the dead, and indeed is going ahead of you to Galilee.”

Pope Francis mentioned in his Easter Vigil homily last night in Rome, that to return to Galilee means to “re-read everything on the basis of the Cross and it’s victory”  We must take into account all of what Christ did during His earthly ministry, even the betrayal and the crucifixion.

The journey that Christ took on the hill to Calvary was not just a beating, or a act of sacrifice. It was a Journey of Love that gave us life in the resurrection.  During this Easter season let us all discover our Journey of Love.

Let us all experience the Easter Joy, let us all experience a new resurrection, a new life in which the tomb does not have power!
