Truth vs Lie

An extraordinary event has happened, which makes it impossible to keep silent. The out-of-the-world event of the Resurrection triggers two kinds of responses: a passion to spread the news about it to everyone around, as the women in the story does, and even to the ends of the earth, as the apostles would do later. The other response, which is more of a reaction, is to suppress the truth, falsify it, and even kill it. Even when the fabricated lie of the stealing of the body of Jesus by the disciples has survived even to this day, the truth of the Resurrection has unleashed the reign of the Spirit that no lies can stop. How do I respond to the truth of the Resurrection—by affirming and claiming it or by falsifying and rejecting it? Or, still worse, by being indifferent to it?
