Do you believe in the resurrection? This is a good thing to ask, at least so St.
Paul says, because if the answer is “no,” then “our faith is in vain” (1 Cor
15:14).
But sometimes it is hard to know what this “resurrection” is. Couldn’t it
simply be bringing Jesus back to life so he could go on as before?
In no way. Jesus was deeply marked by injuries, humiliation and death, and a
mere return to life would let these recede into the background of an ordinary
life.
Here is a metaphor to suggest a better answer.
There is a spiritual soil that all life sprouts from. In his death Jesus plunged
deep down into this soil. He had stumbled, fallen, and had lost the very thing
we think is irreplaceable and to be guarded beyond all else:
life.
But think about it. Life is only a garden plant, and it grows from a loam so rich that we hardly notice it. That spiritual
soil is love,
vast and quiet love.
But doubt sets in. Doubting Thomas was resentful, probably broken-hearted. He warded off his grief by simple
denial. Unless I “put my finger into the nail marks and put my hand into his side, I will not believe” (Gospel).
And men. In the gospel of Luke, the women, not the men, had seen the empty tomb and angels, and they took it
seriously. But “ … their words seemed an idle tale, and [the apostles] did not believe” (Lk 24:11). In Matthew, Jesus
came first to the women, but when the men went to the place said he would meet them, “they worshipped him, but
some doubted” (Mt 28:17). In Mark, Jesus appeared first to Mary Magdalene, but when she went to the apostles, you
guessed it, they rejected her testimony (Mk 16:9). Nor did they listen to the men who had met Jesus walking to
Emmaus (Mk 16:12-13).
Hard to miss the fact that women usually believed and men usually did not. The women dared to trust what they saw.
Sure, women have been given lower status in culture throughout the ages, but it is a big mistake to ignore their
testimony.
Dan Brown’s Da Vinci Code is another vehicle for huge doubt. For him, males have systematically repressed the
essence of Christianity. The real truth, guarded through centuries, he claims, is that Mary Magdalene was Jesus’ secret
wife. Moreover, a flesh and blood descendent from Jesus is alive today (a woman, living in secret and in fear for her
life). Obviously if the gospels are just huge cover-ups, then the resurrection would be just one more spin of a
glittering wheel of deception.
What is the truth about the resurrection?
Jesus’ life, death and resurrection aimed us toward the source of all life, the source of the universe, of the trees, of the
women and the men, of marriage and of offspring. Jesus was the river of love that God had poured into the world.
He was now flowing back into the ocean of the Trinity and taking us along, whichever of us chooses to believe.
That is the resurrection.
Do you believe in it? If you do, then you believe that love is the foundation of life. Just put your finger into the mark
of the nails, and put your hands into his side and you will find it. ~ John Foley S. J.

known and loved. Each person
will be given a plant which will
have the names of your loved
ones attached which will

EASTER SEASON! Yes, Easter has just begun... it's not over, it
has just started! From now to Pentecost we celebrate. Easter
is not the end after Palm Sunday, Holy Thursday, Good Friday

Thank you to the Poteet Family…
Do not take for granted that you are registered in the
Parish just because you attend Mass. It could be quite
embarrassing to us, you and your family when
someone wants to make wedding plans, have a baby
baptized, attend Faith Formation, or if you are asked
to be a Sponsor for Baptism or Confirmation requiring
a note of Catholicity from us. If we have no record of
membership, we cannot provide these services for you.
The Parish Office is open for registration Monday Friday between 8:30am and 3:00pm.
from the Family Life Committee for
organizing the 3rd Annual Saint
Elizabeth Seton Parish Easter Egg Hunt.
All the children, as well as the adults,
had an “eggciting” morning!
