Readings: Acts 2:14, 22–33; Psalm 16:1–2a, 5, 7–11; Matthew 28:8–15
Nobody likes a cover-up, because usually something bad that needs to be addressed is being covered up. In today’s Gospel something even worse is happening: something good is being covered up.
In some cultures Easter Monday is a holiday to recover from all the Easter festivities and on Tuesday everything is done. Spring Break in other cultures is the focus and is either ending or ended. Celebrating the solemnity of Easter has just begun: it lasts eight days, and then we continue into a whole Easter season.
Let’s not stop being witnesses to the Risen Christ. Let’s not be part of the cover-up. Let’s keep spreading the joy of the Risen Lord to everyone we meet.
