We Are An Easter People

By Laura K. Roland

Riding the metro home, I couldn’t get the encounter out of my mind.  Am I that joyful, that radiant, that open at mass and after?   Do I take Jesus to others or do I keep that precious body for myself after I receive Him in the Eucharist?

And then I saw her - a woman who was standing at the foot of the stairs, looking at the church as if trying to muster the courage and energy to enter the doors. I don't know what her battle was (we all have them) but the look on her face mimicked the look on mine - fear, anxiety, regret, did I mention fear?
