I found this YouTube video enlightening... Fr. Tom talks about how the resurrection was not seen - but is something between Jesus and God and the Holy Spirit. Close to the end of his talk, Fr. Tom states "Easter invites us to recall the past with gratitude, to accept the future with hope and the present moment with wonder and awe. Easter is God's glorious answer to questions about the significance of our lives. "
