A New Day

This is the Day the Lord has made.
Let us rejoice and be glad.

The Lord Jesus, our Hope is risen. And all through the days of this Easter Octave, we have chanted this responsory during the Divine Office. Because of the rising of Christ Jesus our Lord from the dead, death and even our smaller daily dyings no longer have any power over us. God's love has power. Our lives, our very existence, have been irrevocably transformed for good, forever. A new Day has dawned upon the earth.
