Easter is outrageous!
The most brilliant of all God's blessings "outrages" life from our human perspective. The Resurrection turns upside-down our haughty and "reasoned" conceptual control of what is and what is not possible. The Resurrection offends a grown up's sense of justice. The Resurrection usurps steely rationality (the material) from the throne of the human heart and allows faith, hope, and love (the immaterial) to reign. If we fail to sense the outrageousness of Easter, then we have missed the mystery - and have yet to be grasped by its power to save us.
