As I prayed the first Glorious Mystery of the Holy Rosary, which is the Resurrection, I tried to sense the joy that the disciples must have felt when they found out that their Lord had risen. After the crucifixion, despair must have descended upon them. Then the Resurrection turned everything around. It must have been a tremendous uplifting experience! Even though we did not live in those days, the effect on us should be the same. Feeling the joy of the Risen Christ is not to be limited to Easter time only. Let this joy outweigh any sorrow or pain that we may experience in this life.
