NTS: Easter Tuesday Collect - "...perfect freedom."

New Translations Spotlight is a quick look at some of the particularly beautiful prayers of the Roman Missal, Third Edition. As we come across them throughout the year, we'll post them. 

From yesterday's Collect for the Tuesday within the Octave of Easter:
O God, who have bestowed on us paschal remedies, endow your people with heavenly gifts, so that, possessed of perfect freedom, they may rejoice in heaven over what gladdens them now on earth. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.

Short Reflection
On Good Friday, as Christ climbed the Cross we see what he did with his own freedom. Love. On Easter we celebrate the victory of that truly free act. In the shadow of the Cross, and filled with the joy and hope of Easter, what shall we do with our very own freedom?
