“Christ is Risen, Alleluia” is today’s message – a message to be proclaimed throughout the ages. On this, ‘the Feast of feasts’, ‘the great Sunday’ the church sings out the Good News to all the world. The daily liturgy over the next fifty days, up to Pentecost Sunday will constantly come back to this bedrock of our faith. We can never exhaust the significance, implications and relevance of Jesus Christ rising from the dead. “If Christ has not been raised, your faith is pointless” is how St Paul simply explains it to his recent converts.
May the power of this great event seep into our souls and inspire us to overcome ‘death’ in the many forms we encounter it along our journey of life.
Wishing you a happy, safe and blessed Easter.
