Resurrection as a spiritual experience

By Fr. Robert D’Souza
The Resurrection of Jesus is a spiritual experience. One has to be well disposed in order to experience the power of the risen Lord. The women went to the tomb to anoint the body of Jesus but they were told by the angel that Jesus is raised to life.

They were so happy that they wanted to go and break this good news to the disciples. This very disposition is honoured by Jesus himself. He appears to the women. They worship him and are sent by him to inform the disciples that he will appear to them in Galilee.

A genuine experience of the risen Lord brings in a missionary spirit in a person. On the other hand the news disturbs those who are not prepared to hear it. Among them are the guards, the chief priests and the elders.

The guards had seen the angel of light; they had fallen on the ground with fear and trembling. Yet they refused to believe in the resurrection of Jesus.

The chief priests and elders could not imagine that Jesus could rise again from dead. Hence they had kept a strict guard over his tomb. Now they wanted to suppress the news about Jesus’ resurrection.

How well am I disposed in order to experience power of the risen Lord? What news do I have for the world?
