Fifty Days

Angel on Tomb from the Pericopes by Henry II The Easter Season is a grand season – so grand that it lasts fifty day!  I trust that the celebration is so long and intentional because it takes a while for it all to sink-in.  Even though I have heard the Easter Story recounted time and time again— even though I’ve seen the movie Jesus of Nazareth more times than I can count—even though I have alleluia on my lips—I still wrestle with understanding what Easter really and truly is all about.

I am glad we have these fifty days to reflect upon what happened in the days after the Resurrection. It is stirring to read the accounts of Jesus’ followers
