Thought Provokers for this Sunday


The grave is but a covered bridge
leading from light to light,
through a brief darkness.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow,
A Covered Bridge at Lucerne

What reason have atheists for saying that we cannot rise again?
Which is the more difficult, to be born, or to rise again?
That what has never been, should be,
of that what has been, should be again?
Is it more difficult to come into being than to return to it?

Blaise Pascal, Pensées

There is a monastic order called “The Community of the Resurrection.”
That would be a good name for the whole church.

Robert McAfee Brown

The Gospels do not explain the resurrection;
the resurrection explains the Gospels.
Belief in the resurrection is not an appendage to the Christian faith;
it is the Christian faith.

J.S. Whale

Let us not then darken the joy of Christ’s victory
by remaining in captivity and darkness,
but let us declare His power,
by living as free people who have been called by Him
out of darkness into his admirable light.

Thomas Merton
