In him everything is reconciled in heaven and on earth.

Easter is a time to celebrate the central concept of our faith—Jesus’ rising from the dead. But the Resurrection is more than this. It reminds us that like Jesus we too have both human and divine qualities. This is what makes us ‘Christ-like’. As St Paul tells us in Colossians: ‘The life you have is hidden with Christ in God.’

We come to realise that matter and spirit are all one and God is in all. Knowing this, that God is an inherent part of all creation, natural and human, we begin to see the world with fresh eyes. How, then, can we hurt our fellow humans or deny them comfort? And how can we damage our earth, the supplier of all our needs and also the source of the spirit that makes us whole and connects all?
