What we celebrate on Easter is the resurrection of Jesus Christ. It is the recalling of a moment in history that changed the human experience for ever. This moment was in the mind of God from all time; prophesied by the prophets, and witnessed to by the apostles who encountered Christ on several occasions after he had risen from the dead.
Because of the passion, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ we now have hope in eternal life and we need not be weighed down by the difficulties of this present life as if this is all there is.
As St. Paul tells us in Colossians 3:2, “Think of what is above, not of what is on earth.”
May our Risen Lord bless you with His abundant joy and may you be renewed in your love for Him and His Church!
Rejoice in hope! He is Risen!
