Pope Francis, in his homilies, speaks of three simple attitudes: hopefulness, openness to being surprised by God and living in joy. In the midst of difficulties God acts and surprises us. Jesus shows us that the face of God is a loving Father. Sin and death have been defeated. Christians cannot be pessimists! We cannot look like someone in constant mourning. If we are truly in love with Christ and if we sense how much he loves us, our hearts will “light up” with joy. “Light up” is an apt expression for the Easter season. The paschal candle, a symbol of the presence of the risen Christ among the people of God, is placed in a prominent place in the sanctuary. The light of Christ shines in and through us.
