Twelve Easter Vigils Ago
As I look forward to my thirteenth Easter Vigil as a Catholic, I am reminded of something my poor brother said to me before I was received into the Catholic Church. He claimed that I would grow tired of the liturgy and the ritual and I'd go back to where I came from. Well, I'm happier here than I've ever been and I cherish the ancient Liturgy that connects me over and over again here in time and space with the Holy Liturgy in Heaven and provides me with the One Flesh Union with my Lord, Master and Spouse, Jesus Christ. How could one ever tire of that? Wouldn't that be the very same as tiring of Heaven? Like growing weary of the Beatific Vision? No, dear one, I'm not the least bit tired of close encounters with Jesus Christ. You really have no idea what you are missing. That would explain why I am the only one who sheds tears over your rejection of His invitation to the Supper of the Lamb.
Blessed Easter my friends. He is Risen!!!
