- Saint Thérèse's letter to her sister Celine (letter five)
Surrexit Christus vere, alleluia! Christ has truly risen, alleluia! Today we begin our celebration of fifty days. We are living, brothers and sisters, in the reality of Christ's Resurrection every moment of every day, but these fifty days allow us to focus more intently on the event of the resurrection, as well as the response of the early Church to this "good news" (Gospel). We cannot help but turn our eyes to heaven. Look to where we are headed! Look where Jesus has borne our human nature: drawn it into God Himself and into the eternal bliss we were created to be partakers in!
