Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
Let us cleanse our senses and behold Christ resplendent with the unapproachable light of the Resurrection, saying: “Rejoice”
It is a day of Resurrection and everything is filled with light. Let us allow this joyful light to penetrate into our souls so that we can truly respond to our Lord’s greeting “Rejoice”. Allow it to enlighten the darkest corners of our heart so that we can respond to our Church’s exhortation “let us cleanse our senses.” Chase far away from ourselves every part of our senses which is unclean and which makes us feel ashamed because we are not totally unblemished.
With the Resurrection, all things are filled with light and it is important that this light penetrates deeply into our minds and into our senses. Only then will our vision be uncorrupted and the eyes of our soul wide open.
