Easter… ((breathe))…Easter…

The Eternal Work of the universe is done, complete with the Salvation of mankind. We will celebrate that He is Risen! I will rejoice!

This Easter Sunday, after the chocolate and food, after 1700 mass, I will go for a run. I will run to feel my legs and my breath and be grateful for my Savior’s gifts to me.

I will run to celebrate and rejoice and be calm.

Happy Easter Triduum, my friends. Whether you know it or not, whether you like it or not, you are loved and I will say a prayer for us all.
