Sister Jeanne Ann Weber – I Have Come That You May Have Life, Life to the Full!

This is a favorite scripture of mine which comes to mind particularly during this Easter season, especially as the waters are rushing down hills and mountains into the lakes and rivers, and as spring is trying to break forth with her verdant cape of green and her multi-colored jewels bedecking blossoming trees and flower stalks.

I have come that you may have life - abundant life!

I find nature a place to praise God and sing my alleluias, as well as in our Chapel during this octave of Easter.  Our Morning and Evening Prayer begin with a solemn intonation followed by one of my favorite Easter hymns, and there are many!  Each psalm has an antiphon bespeaking the great paschal mystery of Christ’s death and resurrection!  Death begets life, despair is turned to hope, the impossible becomes possible, and sorrow is turned to joy.  He is risen, alleluia!  Let us indeed be Easter people!

“Listen carefully, my child, to your master's precepts, and incline the ear of your heart. Receive willingly and carry out effectively your loving father's advice, that by the labor of obedience you may return to Him from whom you had departed by the sloth of disobedience.”
