Easter 5 Exult


Word Origin and History for exult
v. 1560s, "to leap up;" 1590s, "to rejoice, triumph," from Middle French exulter, from Latin exultare/exsultare "leap about, leap for joy," frequentative of exsilire "to leap up," from ex- "out" (see ex- ) + salire "to leap" (see salient (adj.)). The notion is of leaping or dancing for joy.

I was surprised to see this. 

Of course, I love the physicality of it. 

Easter is full of physicality. 

Resurrection life might lead to exultation. 

Go ahead. Try out a little leaping dance. Or a dancing leap. 

Do it for the joy of it.
