Christ resurrected is all of that private, un-grieved, un-noted suffering received, loved and transformed by an All-Caring God. How else could we have any kind of cosmic hope? How else would we not die of sadness for what humanity has done to itself and to one another?
Jesus is the blueprint, the plan, the pattern revealed in one body and moment in history to reveal the meaning of all history and each of our lives.
The cross is the banner of what we do to one another and to God.
The resurrection is the banner of what God does to us in return."
