Celebrating Easter, with the lilies and the tulips, and singing Alleluia is easy. Even joyfully energizing! But, then comes the 50 days season of Easter. What, you say? Yes, the season of Lent is 40 days; the Easter season is 50! For many of us, ‘celebrating joyfully’ for 50 gets as challenging as ‘sacrificing sincerely’ for 40! The sorrows, struggles, injustices and the crosses we bear seem easier to identify with than believing in “something” (justice and truth) and someone (Jesus Christ, Risen) we can’t see.
