Happy Easter and Greetings from the Confidentia Shrine,
We just experienced an extraordinary Triduum and Easter! Perhaps very much like that of the first apostles who after the Last Supper dispersed in isolation, fear, and desolation. Unlike any other, we commemorated the days of the passion, death, and resurrection of Our Lord from home with the help of TV and the digital media. This in itself is a gift and makes us long all the more to return to the sacraments. Accompanied by the threat of the virus, the question concerning life after Covid-19 goes through our minds: What does God want to tell us personally and the world at large with this pandemic?
The news portrays a world caught between fear and anger, between an excess of information and helplessness, negligence, worry, and panic. We are concerned about the medical workforce who serve beyond their strength to minister to the sick and dying. And we worry for the many who have to remain at home, and are anxious about the security of their jobs, their businesses, and the future of their families.
All of us have to come to grips with the sudden reality that our life has fundamentally changed. What seemed meaningful and what we took for granted before is breaking away – piece by piece each day.
This situation challenges us to be and to remain Joyful Apostles, Living the Covenant. The resurrection of Christ is the proof of divine strength that breaks forth from the collapse of human strength. Redeemed by him, we have received his new life. And this is what truly matters!
As worldwide Schoenstatt Family we unite today with great joy, hope, and confidence to hand over the crown to the MTA, each in his or her home.
