Pascua

Easter to you gringos


By guest blast from the past
San Juan de la Cruz

"Should've been dead on a Sunday morning...", goes a song by Creed.

The Spanish verb for "to believe" is creer. "I believe", in Spanish, is Creo. In Latin, Credo.

The word "creed" derives from the Latin: credo for I believe and credimus for we believe, at least according to Wikipedia. It is a formal statement of a belief.

Should've been dead on a Sunday morning. But not. Risen. Against all reason. Against all right to expect. The paschal mystery. Exodus. Passover. Sacrifice. Ransom. Freedom. New Life.

How to respond?
Enter into the mystery.
Contemplate Reality.
Believe.
