Being Born

The Resurrection does not negate the unpleasant realities of suffering and death. They still remain. The Risen Christ is not a shimmering phantom or psychological wish-fulfillment free of blemish. The Risen Christ bears the wounds of suffering and death. Suffering and death remain a part of life, just as ever, but they are now given their proper perspective. After the Resurrection, they still remain physical pain, emotional suffering, darkness, confusion, turmoil, feelings of separation, the shedding of blood, sometimes loss of faith, and fear of the unknown; but one now also sees these are the process of being born.
