Haitian Corner
Jour de Pâques
La fête de Pâques, pour nous, chrétiens, c’est d’abord la résurrection de Jésus. Ce mot Pâques signifie passage. C’est le passage de Jésus à la vie définitive de Dieu. Des passages, nous en faisons beaucoup dans notre vie : on
passe de l’enfance à l’adolescence, on passe d’une classe à l’autre ; ces passages, ce sont des moments importants qui nous permettent de progresser,
d’aller plus loin. Pour les jeunes, il y a d’autres passages ; je pense au moment où l’on entre dans la vie active, le moment où l’on quitte ses parents
pour aller fonder une famille ailleurs. On pourrait en faire une longue liste.
Aujourd’hui, nous fêtons le grand passage de Jésus ; c’est son passage à la
vie de Dieu ; et c’est dans ce passage qu’il veut nous entraîner. C’est lui le
passeur. Cette résurrection de Jésus c’est d’abord une Bonne nouvelle qui a
bouleversé des foules entières. Chacun demandait : « Que devons-nous faire ? » Et la réponse a été un appel à se convertir et à demander le baptême.
C’est ainsi que la résurrection de Jésus a été le point de départ d’un changement radical dans leur vie.
En ce jour, de nombreux baptêmes sont célébrés dans la plupart des églises
du monde entier. Des enfants, des jeunes, des adultes entrent dans la grande
famille des chrétiens. Pour eux aussi c’est un passage, un nouveau départ.
Toutes ces personnes qui ont été baptisées au cours de la veillée pascale et
celles qui le sont en ce jour s’engagent sur la même route que nous ; sur cette
route, ce n’est pas toujours facile ; il y a parfois le doute, le découragement ;
les multiples activités font qu’on n’a pas toujours le temps de s’arrêter, de
prendre du temps pour retrouver le Seigneur.
Mais aujourd’hui, nous sommes interpellés : tous ces nouveaux baptisés ont
besoin de notre témoignage ; ils ont besoin de sentir que Jésus ressuscité
c’est quelqu’un d’important pour nous, qu’il est vraiment la lumière de notre
vie. Pour nous aider à comprendre cela, il y a un symbole fort dans la célébration du baptême. Nous avons devant nous le cierge pascal. Il représente la
lumière. Hier soir, au cours de la veillée pascale, cette lumière a été communiquée à toute l’assemblée. Cette lumière nous fait penser à Jésus, à l’espérance qu’il met en nous, à l’amour qu’il a pour nous.
A cause de Pâques, à cause de la résurrection du Christ,
ne gardons pas les yeux rivés sur la terre. Levons-les
vers le Royaume où Dieu nous attend. Et vivons comme des ressuscités. L'Eucharistie que nous célébrons
ensemble nous y invite.
