“Why do you seek the living One among the dead?” The women came to the tomb expecting to bring fragrant oil to a dead person. Instead they discovered that Jesus was indeed alive. I invite all of us, especially the young people here, to seek life in the days to come. How can you best honor your friend Liam? You can honor him by honoring the gift of life. In your pain you will not find life if you seek it in drugs or alcohol. You will find despair and disappointment there. You will not find life by expecting this life to meet all of your needs. It will not. If you expect this life to meet all your needs, you will be sorely disappointed. If you expect others to take your pain and loneliness away, you will smother the relationship. You will find life by loving passionately, compassionately and yet, with a gentle grasp on life. Enjoy this life. You are young. God wants you to enjoy this life. But your hearts will always be restless until they rest in God. Please allow the truth of this statement to guide you in life. May you live lives of enthusiasm and joy.
