Boff on the meaning of Resurrection

Today I want to share some words from Leonardo Boff, a liberation theologian from Brazil. I have always found liberation theology to have magnificent resonance with the mission of The Salvation Army. Perhaps these words will serve to illustrate why.
Wherever people seek good, justice, humanitarian love, solidarity, communion and understanding between people, wherever they dedicate themselves to overcoming their own egoism, making this world more human and fraternal and opening themselves to the normative Transcendent for their lives, there we can say, with all certainty, that the resurrected one is present, because the cause for which he lived, suffered, was tried and executed is being carried forward.
