Oscar Kokoschka:  The Resurrection

 

Sixth Sunday in Ordinary Time C: 

The Resurrection is Our Hope

 

Readings for Mass
First Reading: Jeremiah 17:5-8
Responsorial Psalm: Psalms 1:1-2, 3, 4, 6
Second Reading: First Corinthians 15:12, 16-20

Now if Christ is proclaimed as raised from the dead, how can some of you say there is no resurrection of the dead (NRSV, 1 Cor 15:12)?

 

Let us pray.

 

Father, in our encounter with you at Mt. Sinai we grasped for the first time that you are God for your people, that you command us to love one another, and that you call us to a future destiny. That destiny we could only conceive as the Land:  The Land was to be our future.  In the resurrection of Jesus we have come to realize how limited our understanding had been.  You have created the world for our use and blessing, yes, but you call us rather to a life beyond this world, to a life with you in the world to come, a life that will never end.  The resurrection and everlasting union with you, not the Land, is our true destiny, one that begins even now, as we have realized as well in Jesus, as you share your divine life with us in this world at every moment, even from the womb.

 

Through Christ our Lord.  Amen.
