Vol. 8 | No. 8 | April 21, 2023

On the cover: Christ pulls Adam out of “limbo” while surrounded by other biblical figures in a late 13th-century painting (artist unknown). St. John Chrysostom famously wrote about Easter: “Forgiveness is risen from the grave.” But what does that mean for us? On Page 10, Mike Aquilina details how history, Scripture, and the experience of the apostles reveals forgiveness as the Resurrection’s most tangible result. On Page 14, Jennifer Hubbard recounts how her 6-year-old daughter’s murder in the Sandy Hook shooting led her on a journey to do the impossible.
