In this podcast, Fr. Peter Armenio reflects on this joyous Easter season and the consoling truth of the faith in which we know that Christ has conquered sin and death for all. This season encourages us to look inward and foster a resurrection within our spiritual life. As we continue to grow in holiness, we receive the grace needed to be a vessel in which others can encounter Christ through our witness.
St. Josemaria explains: “Easter is a time of joy – a joy not confined to this period of the liturgical year, but to be found really and fully in the Christian’s heart. For Christ is alive. He is not someone who has gone, someone who existed for a time and then passed on, leaving us a wonderful example and a great memory. No, Christ is alive. Jesus is the Emmanuel: God with us.” (Christ is Passing By, no. 102).
