The Apostles talking to us about their Easter experience!
For three long and joyous years we followed him.
We followed his every move.
We drank in his every word.
We knew neither doubt nor hesitation.
We were like sunflowers.
During the day these keep turning their heads
so that they are always facing the sun.
But when the sun goes down
they close their petals and hang their heads.
That’s how it was with us.
When the sun went down on the Master’s life
Without him our days lacked all charm.
Our lives became a desert.
But how can we tell you the joy that flooded our souls
When we discovered that the Lord had risen?
We cannot do so.
Only he, by his touch,
can do for you what he did for us-
the day he broke through the walls
behind which we were hiding
bemoaning our shattered dreams!
Risen Lord, help us to believe
That you are always with us,
And that nothing in life or death
Can separate us from you.
