Practice (metaphorical) Crucifixion
I agree that we must practice being people of the Resurrection. However, I believe we must first practice being people of the Crucifixion which is far more difficult. To me, at least, it seems so much "easier" to believe in the joys of the Resurrection than to practice the obedience and sacrifice of our Lord's Crucifixion. In God's mind and in our liturgical thinking, if not in practice, those two truly ultimate realities are inseparable. Yet, I fear the suspicion one regularly encounters about sin because we are all such "good" human beings, clouds our understanding causing us to overdo, if that is the correct word, our joy.
