Easter 2017

Happy Easter to my Another Voice readers. 

“Christianity is precisely a liberation from every rigid legal and religious system. This is asserted with such categorical force by St Paul, that we cease to be Christians the moment our religion becomes slavery to “the Law” rather than a free personal adherence by loving faith, to the risen and living Christ.….Let us not darken the joy of Christ’s victory by remaining in captivity and in darkness, but let us declare his power, by living as free men and women who have been called by him out of darkness into his admirable light.” — Thomas Merton (1915 – 1968)

  1. Thank you, Jack. Χριστός ανέστη-αληθώς! αληθώς ανέστη!!!! Resurrexit sicut dixit, alleluia, alleluia!!!! Is that quote of Merton’s from his CONTEMPLATIVE PRAYER, or CONJECTURES? or? Pax, Greg >

  2. Thank you for this beautiful – and timely – Easter message. Many blessings to you during this holy time of the year. Fondly, Maureen
