What sign can you do?
We just celebrated the greatest sign the world has ever witnessed: Jesus who died on the Cross and was laid on the tomb, was raised back to life on Easter Sunday. If we remain in disbelief to the Lord's promise that we too will be raised up to eternal life, then perhaps, what we need is not a sign; but a deeper personal relationship with Jesus - a strengthened faith. No sign will ever be enough for us, if we do not have a deep faith and absolute trust in God. And if we do not trust that God is in control over this pandemic, our fear, anxiety, and desolation may get the best of us. As Easter people, we believe that all our sufferings in this world will have a happy ending.
Mama Mary, inspire us to believe with firm trust and confidence in the power of the Resurrection. Amen.
