He is risen! He is risen indeed! Alleluia!
Annibale Carracci, Holy Women at Christ's Tomb
The world may have already moved on from Easter, but we know our SDMW readers are just getting started. As you bask in resurrection joy, here are a few recommended links for your reading and listening time this week.
First, Anna had two pieces at The Federalist. Don't miss her plea to Netflix not to turn the beloved classic Anne of Green Gables into something it was never meant to be. Then be sure to read her superb contribution to the continuing conversation about whether or not men and women can be friends.
Cheryl wrote one for The Federalist about why people who visited church on Easter should go back the following week. You can also listen to Cheryl talk about her article with Rev. Todd Wilken on Issues, Etc.
Jayme Metzgar, a senior contributor at The Federalist, offered this beautiful meditation on how the occasion of her grandparents moving out of their longtime home reminded her of Christ's resurrection. If you're up for a longer read, consider this Touchstone article about how the Church offers the gift of calm in anxious times.
Are you doing anything special at your house to celebrate the Easter season? A SDMW reader recently shared that she and her children are celebrating by making a cake every week until Ascension. Sounds like a divinely delicious plan!
In other news, the SDMW team has been working hard to learn all about podcasting so as to begin bringing you SDMW content in a whole new way! Look for our first episode in the not-too-distant future. :)
