Happy Easter!

Despite the snow, let us participate in the ancient pagan rites of spring - renewed in the baptism of Love. Yet I am the first to admit I do not understand as I should. The Paschal Mystery - but I want the light. Jesus saves us. Just don't ask me how, why, or from what! I hope one day to earn the privileged right of understanding. Jesus saves us from our darkness, but where does the darkness come? Where does anything come, if not from God?

Love and life oozes from the world - from every barren, rocky wasteland. The presence of God in all creation, yet never completely permeating everything. There is darkness still, or so it seems to me. How did Christ save us from this? Or is it something else?

Regardless of all the chilly wind, and uncertain thoughts, I wish Easter blessings and new life upon all this year.
