He is Risen!
Easter has come and we are in the last few days of its celebration into the Octave. Managed to decently sing through the Exsultet during the Easter Vigil and saw and anointed the newly baptised from the St Jerome RCIA group. It was quite an awesome and breathtaking experience for many of them and the celebration lasted about two hours and forty minutes long. One of them penned her thoughts in the following sentiment:

on sat n sun nite, after everythg ended, i was just telling my dad it didn't feel any different actually. today, strangely, it was a wham bam thg...not really a JOY JOY thing...but just very moved, a bit of fear too that it's too good to be true, a desperate desire to freeze everything in time n hold it there, n not coming back to "real life", knowing that i can take communion, the feeling finally of oneness with Christ, the fact that I can finally take communion, YES! finally, just saying "I'm not worthy to receive u, but only say the word and I shall be Healed" wasn't just a point in time anymore...it wasn't a "6 months from now, 2 weeks from now, 1 day from now" kinda thing...but NOW. It was possible. N yes, hvg all of u there made all d difference too. It mattered not what differences I had.....at that moment, it seemed as if everything was ok..perfect, like a piece of heaven, maybe? And maybe that's what moves me...knowing it CAN be like that...:) Yup, it's an indescribable feeling.....

And what a feeling it is!

Meanwhile, things have sort of returned to normal. Despite that, the readings of Scripture today doesn't wants us to forget that Christ is risen and is with us. Hence the story of Peter and John healing in the of Jesus Christ, that is the risen Saviour that continues to heal and consoles through his followers even till today. Then we have the Emmaus disciples enlightened and transformed by the very presence of the risen Lord. Our challenge in this time and age is to continue to experience the risen Lord in our daily activities and be transformed by them too.

So, have we encountered the risen Lord?...
