How the Risen Lord is still with us

We could ask how is the Risen Lord with us?  The New Testament and the church tradition offer a rich array of “presences”.  Christ is present via my neighbour in need, via created reality beautiful and awe-inspiring, whenever the disciples gather, in the word proclaimed, in the sacrament celebrated and through the Holy Spirit.  Perhaps we do not always feel this presence, but the words of Jesus are a guarantee that no matter what is going on in my life or my community or my church, he is till with us.
