This an amended post from last year:
Eastern Orthodox Easter comes on April 19 this year, but I hope that all the SpareOomers of the Western Christian persuasion (i.e. Protestants and Catholics) have a joyous celebration of the great feast this Sunday, despite all of our current restrictions.
For Lewis, both Easter and Christmas were not very joyous occasions because of all the congratulatory mail he received from persons he probably did not know, but which he felt obligated to respond to.
However, what he wrote about the Resurrection (or Heaven) is a different matter. In his works of fiction, I think three things stand out: the last chapter of The Last Battle, the last chapter of The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, and much of The Great Divorce, with the descriptions of the Bright Spirits.
And the conversations of the Bright Spirits and the love they show for their respective Ghosts, brings to mind a dream I had, in which I went to Heaven, where I was in a big library room, surrounded by people who were sending warm rays of love into me. Surely this must be one of the main features of Heaven --the love we will feel coming from its inhabitants.
“Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. Love does not demand its own way. Love is not irritable, and it keeps no record of when it has been wronged. It is never glad about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance. Love will last forever.” (1 Corinthians 13: 4-8)
