May the undying hope of Easter reach your life

Archbishop Mark Coleridge: “Easter says that there’s no such thing as an ultimately hopeless situation, that every full-stop is in fact a comma or perhaps a dash.”

Archbishop Mark Coleridge: “Easter says that there’s no such thing as an ultimately hopeless situation, that every full-stop is in fact a comma or perhaps a dash.”

THERE’S something awfully final about a grave or a tomb.

When the tomb of Jesus was sealed with a big round stone, that stone must have seemed like a cosmic full-stop.

The party was over.

The world is full of what seem like full-stops – situations that seem hopeless.

Easter says that there’s no such thing as an ultimately hopeless situation, that every full-stop is in fact a comma or perhaps a dash.

That’s why Easter is the womb of true human hope – the hope that born once Jesus rises from the dead and the tomb itself becomes a womb as the stone rolls away.

May the undying hope of Easter reach deep into the life of everyone, especially those struggling most to find hope in what seems a hopeless situation.

 Jesus Christ is risen.

Alleluia.

ARCHBISHOP MARK COLERIDGE
of Brisbane
