He is risen!

Published

This is the day the Lord has made. Let all the earth rejoice.

We celebrate today the greatest feast in the Church’s liturgical calendar — the Easter Sunday of the Lord’s Resurrection.

Jesus Christ rose from the dead on the third day following his crucifixion. It marks the triumph of good over evil, sin, and death.

The cruelest death of Jesus, the Son of God, turned out to be the greatest event in all of human history.

Your personal suffering, your burden, and even your sin can become a source of great joy if we let God transform it into part of His Resurrection.

St. Paul wrote: “If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God.”

As we celebrate Easter Sunday, the triumph of Jesus over sin and death, let the work of our hands continue to glorify the Lord in every way.

Let us strive to become agents of renewal through our simple and humble actions towards our brethren, especially to those in need.

As stated in the Scriptures, let us seek things that are above and not our pleasures in the materialistic world.

God wants us to experience the joy of Easter in our lives.

Let us allow Him to fill us with hope and with the joy that only the Resurrection can bring.

ALLELUIA!
