The Right to Hope
On Easter we acquire a fundamental right that can never be taken away from us: the right to hope. It is a new and living hope that comes from God. It is not mere optimism; it is not a pat on the back or an empty word of encouragement, uttered with an empty smile. No! It is a gift from heaven, which we could not have earned on our own…Jesus plants in our hearts the conviction that God is able to make everything work unto good, because even from the grave he brings life. The grave is the place where no one who enters ever leaves. But Jesus emerged for us; he rose for us, to bring life where there was death, to begin a new story in the very place where a stone had been placed. He who rolled away the stone that sealed the entrance of the tomb can also remove the stones in our hearts. So, let us not give in to resignation; let us not place a stone before hope…God is faithful. He did not abandon us; he visited us and entered into our situations of pain, anguish, and death. His light dispelled the darkness of the tomb; today he wants that light to penetrate even to the darkest corners of our lives. Dear sister, dear brother, even if in your heart you have buried hope, do not give up; God is greater. Darkness and death do not have the last word. All you have to do is open your heart in prayer and roll away, however slightly, that stone placed at the entrance to your heart so that Jesus’ light can enter. You only need to ask him: Jesus come to me amid my fears and tell me too: Courage! With you, Lord, we will be tested but not shaken. And whatever sadness may dwell in us, we will be strengthened in hope, since with you the cross leads to the Resurrection, because you are with us in the darkness of our nights; you are certainty amid our uncertainties, the word that speaks in our silence, and nothing can ever rob us of the love you have for us.”
May Easter bring all of us new hope. Rather than putting our trust in earthly authorities, may we look to Christ, the Risen Lord, to lead us through the storms of life. Have a blessed Easter.
