PRAYER / Lenten Reflection 2005

Easter Tuesday, March 29, 2005

"The earth is full of the goodness of God!" the psalmist proclaims. Mary of Magdala and Jesus meet in a garden, perhaps bursting with new growth. Jesus stops her tears with the simple statement of her name. Imagine the love with which Jesus looks on this woman who would not desert him in his crucifixion.

First, imagine a scene full of the beauty and newness of creation. You are contemplating that beauty when you hear Jesus call your name. Turn and look at him, looking at you with deep tenderness. Rest in his gaze, and/or tell him how you feel.

Help us, Risen Lord, to find you in the beauty of creation and to see all people with your eyes, full of love. Even our "enemies."
