Finally, after a long Lenten season we can say those joyous words, and celebrate the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ from the dead. His resurrection to new life is also our resurrection. Through our Baptism we share in that new life. The virtue most associated with the resurrection - and the Charism of the Congregation of the Resurrection - is hope. Just as God did the impossible and the improbable in raising Jesus from the dead, we believe that God can also do the impossible and the improbable in our life here and now. That is the basis of our hope, not only on optimism and good human intentions. During this Easter season, let us look for that new life, the surprises of God, the impossible and the improbable wrought by God, and the fulfillment of our hope.
