What does the Messiah’s Resurrection actually mean for us?
Given that the Resurrection is impossible without the Cross..
Given that the Resurrection completes what the Cross inaugurates..
Given that the Resurrection is impossible without the Descent Into Hell..
Given that the Resurrection manifests the turn around, the reversal in the depth, accomplished by the Descent Into Hell.
The Messiah’s Resurrection is not simply to reassure us about the next life. It signifies our remaking for this life.
The most radical message of the Resurrection is about overcoming the death and hell of passion which it suffers in this world, so that raised from that tragedy, passion can plant heaven on earth, and even plant heaven in hell, in this world of time and space and matter and history.
