||Jesus' Resurrection celebrates something special never known before or since. To rise from the dead is so far beyond any human concept, and so much solely God's work, that people have always had a hard time trying to comprehend it. In the Nicene Creed we affirm: "I believe in the resurrection of the body and life everlasting." In celebrating Jesus' Resurrection, therefore, we celebrate our own as well. For Christians, the Easter Season--stretching from Easter Sunday to Pentecost-- is "party time," a time of stimulated consciousness, an invitation to penetrate more deeply into this mystery of our faith, and to enjoy, enjoy, enjoy. Easter is a season of "Alleluia!" For centuries joyful Christians were known as "Easter People," and Easter was the principal festival on the Church calendar. These reflections will benefit enormously those who wish to enter more profoundly into the spirit of this joyful season.|
