Herald-Zeitung Q Friday, March 28, 1997 Cl 9AThe resurrection of Jesus — source of our joy
What is joy? It is a word often used in the Holy Scriptures. Webster’s dictionary describes it as a condition or feeling of high pleasure of delight — an interior gladness. It is a feeling of gladness. A person knows when he has it, although he might have difficulty in explaining it to another. We read that the saints who went off to martyrdom felt a joy in that they were found worthy to suffer torture and death for their Lord. It is possible to have interior gladness while suffering, if the suffering is leading to a resurrection.
When Jesus called his Apostles, they left everything behind to follow him. There was nothing they possessed or nothing that they were
doing which was not worth giving up to follow the call of Jesus and to be his follower.
In following him they heard things which the world has never heard before. “Who is this that even the sea and winds obey him?” He taught with an authority never experienced before. This new religion required that a follower love his enemy rather than hate him. That persecutors were to be prayed for rather than be
The Apostles saw Jesus feed 5,000 people with two fishes and five loaves of bread. They saw him raise the dead son of a widowed mother. They saw him cure the withered hand of a man in the temple. All of this caused an interior joy. They believed they had found “The one whom Moses talked about.”
Did they ever question Jesus? Yes, they did and very often. One of the questions was what they were going to receive for giving up everything to follow him. They were ambitious, thinking that Jesus was going to establish an earthly kingdom and give all of them special places of honor in it. Jesus said that they would
be rewarded, but that the reward was not of this world. Jesus wants no follower who is ambitious for worldly things.
A small group of women approached the tomb on the first Easter Sunday morning. They wanted to give some small service to the body of Christ by anointing it and clothing it in clean linens. As a reward they heard the greatest message ever given to mankind. An angel of the Lord said to Mary Magdalen and the other Mary who came to inspect the tomb, “Do not be frightened. I know you are looking for Jesus the crucified, but he is not here. He has been raised. Come and see the place where he was laid” (Matt. 28:5-6). These holy women
were filled with joy; they were filled with an interior happiness because the one they so loved had risen from the dead.
Another scripture passage (John 20:13) tells how the message was given to Mary Magdalen. Her past remembers a darkness on her soul. She had spent all on an expensive jar of perfume, broke it over his feet, shed her tears on those feet and dned them with her hair. She sobs. “They have taken away my Lord, and I know not where they have put him.” Then suddenly, Jesus appears behind here, but Mary Magdalen docs not recognize him. “Why are you weeping? Whom are you looking for?” Mary thinks he is the gardener. “Sir if you have taken him away, tell
me where you have put him.” Then in a voice she would know: “Mary*" His joy knew no bounds. Another sinner saw the risen Jesus.
The celebration of the feast of the resurrection of Our Lord brings families together to experience the joy of the feast. One of the greatest joys that every family can share is the time to forgive any existing grievances and be reconciled with one another and with the Lord. J ake the time to show that the Risen I <nd brings himself to you with the gilts of love, unity and peace to your famify. May the Laster Joy be in your family not only on Laster Sunday but evefy day of your life
