"To keep ourselves right in all things, we ought to hold fast to this principle: What seems to me to be white, I will believe to be black if the hierarchical Church thus determines it. For we believe that between Christ our Lord, the Bridegroom, and the Church, His Spouse, there is the one same Spirit who governs and guides us for the salvation of our souls..." - Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius [365]

He is Risen! All is Well!

The long wait is over. Our faith has borne fruits for us. Our hope is fulfilled: JESUS IS RISEN!!! As we rejoice on this most solemn day, we remind ourselves that our every endeavor, our very life, precisely everything do not end on the Cross: beyond the cross is the empty tomb; after the fateful afternoon in Calvary follows the bright dawn of a new day!

So let us rejoice and let us be true to our very nature, as St. Augustine aptly puts it: "We are Easter people and Alleluia is our song!" As we celebrate the Lord's triumph over sin and death, let us constantly remind ourselves of the great promise of the Easter: All shall be well! Let us remember that even if the most difficult of times and situations envelope us, we always have an "Easter" to hope for: All shall be well.

Rejoice! He is Risen! Happy Easter!
