Easter 2 – Year B
Friends are private places safe from harm where privacy of self is not a main value. Friends are in life with us, heart and soul. Friendship is the oneness promised in the Shema – Hear this, God is a Friend – and affirmed by Jesus – I call you Friends, not servants.
Where do you travel when there is amazing news to tell? A sorrow too deep for the keeping? To someone, somewhere, where sharing is honorable! where mutual sharing is a joy!
When who-bodies and where-places give evidence of this sort of welcome and hospitality we might say a resurrection has occurred. Hie thee hence!
