The power of Easter...

“The Christian has no Law but Christ. Our “Law” is the new life itself which has been given to us in Christ. Our Law is not written in books but in the depths of our own hearts, not by the pen of human beings but by the finger of God. Our duty is now not just to obey but to live. We do not have to save ourselves, we are saved by Christ. We must live to God in Christ, not only as they who seek salvation but as they who are saved."

Thomas Merton, Seasons of Celebration [SC]. New York: Farrar, Straus & Giroux, 1950:147.
