Easter: Life from Death

Br. Michael, ofm

Life is full of unknowns

death seems to lurk always near.


Life from death

does not make sense.


Yet the parable of the seed

gives insight into this reality.


Christ Jesus

crucified – died – buried

Risen from the dead

trampling death

bringing us life.


Life not as we know it

rather beyond what we can know.


With him we too rise

death although earthly has no real grip.


Continually on the journey

new life springs forth from what has died.


Christ Jesus

Risen from the dead

our fullness of life

we praise you

for defeating death.



Alleluia! Alleluia!



Easter Blessings!
