Happy Easter 2024! (and, here’s to more Visibility)

“God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.”
  - Genesis 1:27, Holy Bible (English Standard Version)

“For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. For one will scarcely die for a righteous person—though perhaps for a good person one would dare even to die— but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. “
  - Romans 5:6-8, Holy Bible (English Standard Version)

Resurrection give life meaning.

Last November I mentioned that out of the 365 days in a year there are 307 days where the Non-Heterosexuals can celebrate or commemorate someone or something specific to their own Community. That’s 85% of the year. It’s a fact that some websites apparently discovered only recently ;-)

One of those many Non-Heterosexual events is “Transgender Day of Visibility” celebrated on March 31st, which for 2024 is Easter Sunday. Of course, Joe Biden – a self-declared Catholic who supports abortion – released a presidential proclamation from the White House honoring the 1.03% of Americans proclaiming themselves as transgender.

Way to go, Joe! Here’s how I imagined you portrayed Christ made himself visible to Mary Magdalene on this Holy Day for Christians:

Did you know? Mary Magdalene was the only person who witnessed Christ’s crucifixion, burial, and resurrection.

To Christians – maybe even Joe Biden – Easter Sunday signifies the Rebirth, Transformation, and Resurrection of the spirit, through Christ’s victory over Death, regardless of the physical body. And, the Bible says your body is God’s Temple, purchased through the crucifixion of Christ who died for the sins of mankind:

“…do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.”
  - Saint Paul, First Letter to the Corinthians, 6:19-20

“But someone will ask, “How are the dead raised? What kind of body will they have?” How foolish! What you plant doesn’t come to life unless it dies. When you plant something, it isn’t a completely grown plant that you put in the ground. You only plant a seed. Maybe it’s wheat or something else. But God gives the seed a body just as he has planned. And to each kind of seed he gives its own body. Not all earthly creatures are the same… It will be like that with bodies that are raised from the dead. The body that is planted does not last forever. The body that is raised from the dead lasts forever. It is planted without honor. But it is raised in glory. It is planted in weakness. But it is raised in power. It is planted as an earthly body. But it is raised as a spiritual body.”
  - Saint Paul, First Letter to the Corinthians, 15:35-39,42-44

Today, let’s celebrate the Spirit, and make it visible through Christ’s example.

Thanks for Reading! (…and, Happy Easter!)
