Easter Tuesday

Hans Holbein 'Noli Me Tangere'

'Do not hold on to me...But go to my brothers and say to them, 'I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God' (St John 20:17)

At times, we are so uncomfortable within ourselves we must quickly reach out. Our Lord doesn't force us to stay within ourselves; oftentimes, he allows us this discomfort so we can reach out. To resolve this, I reach out to Jesus and Mary by throwing myself into acts of charity (St Therese, Advice and Memories, p99)
