The apostles saw Christ, but were not yet members of His body. We are members of His body, but do not yet see Him. These two things, which are now separated, are to be united in the other world and, being united, they will make us happy forever.
--John Keble, from “The Sight of God Incarnate”, a sermon preached on an Easter Sunday. (Volume 6, sermon 12 of his collected sermons)
What a great hope indeed! And may this Easter season, with the hope that comes from the Resurrection of Christ and of his people, be a joyous one for all my readers.
