EASTER SUNDAY- REJOICE AND BE GLAD
Juanita was a lovely Indian lady suffering from a crippling and painful illness. I would visit her in her little adobe house each morning when I would take her communion. And she would ask the same question each day: “Padre, is there a Resurrection? Tell me the truth”. “Yes Juanita, and he is here with us”. Strange - when I or others left her presence we were the ones who believed even more because of her. She was a visible sign of the Resurrection for us.
