In releasing his Easter Message to the Melbourne Archdiocese for 2018, Archbishop Denis Hart observes that in all of the gospels’ Resurrection stories, Jesus appears still wounded, a parallel between the risen Jesus and ourselves, as a wounded community, a hurting world. Amidst the joy and the beauty of our lives, there will still be wounds, he reminds us. It is in our own closeness to the wounded and yet resurrected Christ that our own wounds may, in fact, bring healing to others.
