The day of resurrection, the eighth day, this eternally present gift and reality has the potential of breaking into our mundane, temporal affairs and transforming them by the light of Jesus who lives and reigns with the Father and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. The holy prophet Zephaniah spoke of this here:
On that day it shall be said to Jerusalem:
“Fear not, O Zion;
let not your hands grow weak.
The Lord your God is in your midst,
a mighty one who will save;
he will rejoice over you with gladness;
he will quiet you by his love;
he will exult over you with loud singing.
A timely word as we pass through these perilous timeswhen many things are being and yet will be shaken, so that what cannot be shaken may be clearly seen.
