Go and take your place
But during the night, the angel of the Lord opened the doors of the prison, led them out, and said, “Go and take your place in the temple area, and tell the people everything about this life.”
I think in some ways “Go and take your place” could serve as a motto for Christian people. Why do I say that? Because the resurrection of Jesus, the love of the Father, and the outpouring of the Holy Spirit are too magnificent for us to keep this to ourselves.
Go and take your place. What does this mean for us? Being willing to have conversations with others about the faith. Listening to others to see where it is they might be open to the Spirit in their lives. Teaching. Praying. Witnessing. These are the important aspects of what the presence of God leads us to do.
For the purpose of the Paschal Mystery, the life, death and resurrection of Jesus is for our conversion. It is so that by accepting God’s grace we can become more and more like Christ. And this means being willing not only to allow the grace of God to enter into our lives, but also to become vehicles of God’s grace so that others can know Jesus and the Church better.
