Easter 2 - Year B
When we are together, but fearful, we are not together.
When we are together, under a word of “Peace”, we are of one heart and soul. Our possessions are each others. Common good means both “common” and “good”.
This is a sign of the resurrection - that the last word to the disciples has become real - “Love one another as I have loved you.”
Resurrection opens our eyes to need, beyond want, and addresses need directly. When resurrection is only a concept, but not a reality, we find all manner of means to cover “need” with “want” and it turns out that my want always trumps your need.
