The Risen Christ is in the Poor

By Fr. Kevin McKenna

“On Easter Day, on awakening late after the long midnight services in our parish church, I read over the last chapter of the four Gospels and felt that I received great light and understanding with the reading of them. ‘They have taken the Lord out of his tomb and we do not know where they have laid him,’ Mary Magdalene said, and we can say this with her in times of doubt and questioning. How do we know we believe? How do we know we indeed have faith? Because we have seen his hands and his feet in the poor around us. He has shown himself to us in them. We start by loving them for him, and we soon love them for themselves, each one a unique person, most special!”
(Dorothy Day).
