Become an Alleluia for the World

A reflection by Mother Maria-Michael Newe, OSB.

Today is a good day to look back on our Lent, and ask ourselves, “What has become different within me? What has become tangibly resurrectional?”
Every Lent reveals something new within us. It brings forth the very core of our mission of our vocation and it brings forth fuller the picture of our life. We all have Lenten Resolutions; but do we have Easter Resolutions? Do we have a resolution to make Easter change our lives so that we can really become an ‘Alleluia’ for the world? We must live the joy of the Resurrection—nobody can take that joy from you. Evil will try. It will do its best to keep that stone rolled over the tomb so that you can’t come out. But you can—b y the power of the Resurrection. The Resurrection will roll back the past and open up to you the present moment. Live it.
