A while back I happened upon a movie that was nearing its end, but the portion that I saw spoke so beautifully to the power of the Resurrection.  (I apologize that I didn’t note the name of the movie.)


A grandmother is dying.  And yet she is making that transition with purpose and faith.  She walks around her home, by herself, moving from one window to the next, and pausing at each window to close the drapes for that window, then moving on to the other windows and doing the same thing.


All the while that she is doing this, we yet see, around the edges of the front door, through the windows beside the door, the light that is beyond.  There is much more to the story than the coming of death, than the closing of the drapes.  There is the light that awaits her.  And as the story ends, she opens the door, and walks into the eternal light that is her new home.


It is such a light that Christ enters into in the Resurrection.  The author of the Gospel of John refers to Jesus as the light come into the world.  Jesus refers to himself as the Light of the World.  And now, in the Resurrection, Jesus is again fully a part of that light;  a light that we too will walk into some day.


I hope your Easter celebration is indeed blessed.
