Rahner: the beginning of glory

Tuesday, March 26, 2013
    Feast of Harriet Monsell of Clewer, Religious, 1883
    And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit, who lives in you.
    —Romans 8:11 (NIV)
    Easter is not the celebration of a past event. The alleluia is not for what was; Easter proclaims a beginning which has already decided the remotest future. The Resurrection means that the beginning of glory has already started.
    ... Karl Rahner (1904-1984), Everyday Faith, Herder and Herder, 1968, p. 71 (see the book)
    See also Rom. 8:10-11; Ps. 16:9-10; 49:15; John 6:39-40; 14:19; 1 Cor. 6:14; 2 Cor. 4:13-14; 5:1-5; Phil. 3:10-11,20-21; 1 Thess. 4:14; 2 Tim. 1:7-10; Rev. 1:18
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, do I doubt Your promise?
