#EasterVigil Lesson

Yes, you absolutely can recover from the loss of life's familiar structures and patterns.

The disciples on Holy Saturday:  hiding out, dreams crushed, identities warped, "fearless leader" killed by oppressive state powers which were guided by jealousy and envy.

The disciples after the Resurrection:  surprised beyond belief by the emergence of supernatural good, enfused with a positive mission, focused and determined, full of faith even when challenged or in danger or meeting death.

Yes, you can recover. When Jesus restores, he takes less and makes more.

There is a life worth living, even after the deepest darkness and the most piercing pain.
