Freedom of Resurrection
Restricted, we all have been. Restricted, we still are for the sake of public health. Nevertheless, in these restrictions, could lie a gift of humility And a sense of freedom similar to the Resurrection. Not being able to enjoy freedom in many ways The restrictions challenged my ego And yet brought a refreshing sense of humility A sense of freedom in accepting what cannot be changed. This humble acceptance has something in common with the Resurrection As it frees us from the tomb of our self-centeredness And gets us to care and try to connect more with others While being able to share joy and hope with those in need. As the Resurrected Jesus became more accessible to the world So would we be more available and sensitive to others As we endeavour to free ourselves From the grave of our own worries, doubts and busy-ness. Like the imposed restrictions Any unwanted situation Could free us and provide the kind of self-emptiness That leads to the freedom of Resurrection.
