Easter Mystery

Each of the Gospels regarding the Resurrection mentions that the stone that covered the entrance into the tomb was moved to one side. The Gospels are not legal or journalistic reports, so some of the details they differ from each other. In each of them it is described somewhat differently, but they all insist on the Central truth.FR Laurence Freeman OSB, with loveWhat is the significance of the stone? The gospel claim that he was big and heavy. He blocked the exit, obstructed the path, obstructed access. Of course, this is a clear indication of our resistance and denial that God is life. Held by the culture of death, our fears and cruelty, and the stone is the negation of death and fear of life; it keeps us from a full-fledged answer reality.Jesus still bears the wounds of the Passion and cross. He died, and His return is not superficial, but real. The fullness of the incarnation, His humanity is still with Him, in the life of each who bears His death as part of their own existence. Similarly, our own past never omits sin from memory, but finds broader context of values as we grow. And ultimately, in Christ, this context becomes cosmic. His disappearance and the appearance that we contemplate in these days, indicate even more boundless extension of life, which He lives.His Risen Body is not identical to that which was crucified and died on the Cross, is not materialistic or chemical identity, not resuscitation. We will always incarnate beings. Origen believed that one day we no longer need the body, but it was the prejudice of the dualism of Greek philosophy, it was also characteristic of the Gnostic teachers, and occasionally modern new AGU. But the body will be resurrected as a spiritual body - and yet, it will be the body.Our bodies are important to us: we care how they feel, how they look, how they behave. The resurrection of Christ reminds us of our full embodiment and thus initiates a new way of life: embodied, but fearless, open, and capable of great courage in the defense of justice. After experiencing their oneness with the world and perceiving others without fear and denial of death, we nurture in ourselves a commitment to universal prosperity and integration.From the words of Mary, "so be it", before the Incarnation and Resurrection, we are dealing with istoricheski events, but their reality applies to past and future, in time and beyond it. The resurrection opens a new category of time, literally "new age" in which we meet our true identity and meaning.We can't believe in the Resurrection as we believe in a newspaper report or data from the telephone directory. This is something much more personal experience rather than love. There are universal principles concerning love, but each case is unique. Our vision of the Resurrected Jesus is closely connected to our view of ourselves; we see also how we are seen.He said, "Mary…" She said, "Teacher.".
