On the Third Day

I taught you what I had been taught myself, namely that Christ died for our sins, in accordance with the scriptures; that he was buried; and that he was raised to life on the third day.

Corinth was great and populous port that attracted every kind of philosophy and was also a notorious centre of immorality. The Church in Corinth was in great need of instruction and guidance.  Paul writes about the Good News and the Christian life that flows from it.

Like the people of Corinth, I live in a time and place where philosophies and immoralities of every kind abound.  I am constantly in need of reminding about the basics of my faith, of realigning myself with the Corner Stone of truth.  The Paschal Mystery sums up the Good News well for me, that is;

Jesus truly lived, He truly died, was truly buried and truly rose again on the third day.

Thank you Jesus for being the Good News of my life.  In this Easter season I realign myself with Your resurrected  truth today.
Saints Philip and James please pray for me.
