After the apostles had watched Jesus ascend to his Father in heaven, they returned to Jerusalem.


They went back to the upper room where they had been staying, and they prayed with the new community of believers in Jesus.


One day, Peter stood up in front of about 120 of these new Christians.

Near the end of “Jesus of Nazareth,” the acclaimed 1977 miniseries, those who put Jesus to death are alarmed, to say the least, at the news his tomb has been emptied — and that maybe, just maybe, Jesus has done what he said he would do: rise from the dead.


“And now,” murmurs one of the alarmed, “it begins.”


Such is Easter: a beginning. But of what?

The family reunion was wonderful — reconnecting with beloved relatives and meeting new ones, too. I settled into my airplane aisle seat to return to Los Angeles, completely content about my summer vacation and ready to tackle the second year of graduate school at UCLA, which promised to be as exciting as the first.


Then came a jumble of people in the aisle, a frantic exclamation, and a hardcover suitcase tumbled out of the overhead and cracked into my head and shoulder.

Cuando hice mi primera comunión recibí muchos regalos de amigos y parientes. Entre ellos había una placa rectangular marrón de cerámica con unas manos unidas en oración en una esquina junto con las siguientes palabras, “Dios concédeme la serenidad para aceptar las cosas que no puedo cambiar, el valor para cambiar las cosas que puedo, y la sabiduría para reconocer la diferencia.” Esta oración ha estado colgada en mi dormitorio por todos estos años.
