“During this time when we celebrate the Resurrection of Our Lord Jesus Christ, we ought to reflect and ask ourselves if we have truly risen with the Lord. How dowe know if this has occurred? We will know this if our attitude is one of doing good for others, especially the poor. Indeed it is in the poor that we find Christ himself reflected, Christ who died for us and rose in order to gift us with eternal life.”  writes Jorge Salazar in introducing the issue.
