Moved from Fear to Joy: A Christmas Gift that Keeps GivingA New Normal


Alleluia! Christ is risen!


Christ has died, rescuing us from sin, death and devil.

Christ is risen, the first fruits of those who sleep.

Christ is coming again, making all things new.

This is our new normal.


As Lenten fasting has given way to Paschal feasting, our Lord has brought us into His death and resurrection through our baptism into Him.  It is no longer we who live but Christ who lives in us.  Because He lives, we shall live also.


No longer do we need to live in despair because of our sin.

No longer do grieve as if we have no hope.

No longer do we wonder how things will end.

Christ has brought a new normal to us, causing the isolating, introspective, ever-striving, constantly defeated, self-seeking, pleasure-oriented, dissatisfied old normal to give way to a new resurrection normal that allows us to share the good tidings of great joy of Christ’s presence and peace with all people.


Eternal life through Jesus Christ is God’s gift to you.  Do not submit to the yoke of slavery, guilt and hopelessness any longer.   Regular attendance of the Liturgies of the Church, regular meditation on God’s Holy Word, regular prayer throughout the day, regular gifts of love given for the Kingdom’s extension are not the exception anymore but the new normal.  Christ has given everything to you.  The old has passed away; the new has come.


Forgiveness is yours.  Peace is yours. Hope is yours. Joy is yours. Life is yours.

Love is yours. Christ is yours. Embrace your new normal, giving thanks to God the Father through Christ Jesus our Lord.  Alleluia!  Christ is risen!


Peace and hope in Jesus,
