We live in uncertain times. This is not the Easter we wanted or planned for when we began the Lenten Season. COVID-19 has shattered our plans and expectations, Rev. Br. Christopher Johnson, O.P., says. And yet this uncertainty is the same uncertainty felt at the First Easter with the Apostles. And we like them are called to hope in the Lord who makes good even out of the darkest of our experiences.
We have hope and faith, not in something temporal, but in something salvific. A Better Forever promised to us by Christ when he rose from the dead and restored us to life.
