Dear All,

I hope all of you had a very happy and meaningful Easter celebrations.

Post Easter syndrome could set into any Christian mind. The attitude could be something like the following; now that I have disciplined my mind and spirituality during the Lent season, I can indulge in some of the things that I deprived myself. Let me forget about my faith and spirituality for a while. These are some of the typical thoughts that could go through our mind.

But I want to challenge all of you to resist any such temptation. Like the disciples on the Emmaus Road, let us continue to listen to the still and small voice of the risen Jesus Christ who walks with us. Let us listen to him who challenges us to rethink our mindsets and habits. Let us listen to Jesus’ questions regarding our frustrations, hopes and hopelessness. Then let us ready our mind to see clearly the risen Lord who breaks bread with us. Let us then, like the Emmaus disciples, take a walk back to our friends and fellow travelers in faith.

Let us continue to find new light and new meaning about life and life happenings in the light of the journeying Jesus’ conversations and interactions with us.

May Jesus Christ the co-traveler consistently accompany us to the various paths of life.

Yours in Christ,

George Oommenachen
