Christ is risen graphicJesus Christ our Lord is truly risen from the dead, Alleluia!
We are an Easter people, privileged to celebrate the gift of Christ’s victory over death at Easter.
The Easter celebration is that of the great mystery of Christ’s resurrection from the dead. It is celebrated on Sunday (on a movable date, unlike Christmas that is fixed for 25 December).
It crowns our celebration of the Holy Week, is the end of Lent, the last day of the Easter Triduum (Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter Sunday), and is the beginning of the Easter season of the liturgical year which lasts for seven weeks.
Let us continue to give thanks to the Father for raising Jesus from the dead and for giving us hope that death is not the end. There is eternal life for all who believe in Christ.
Jesus Christ is risen, he is our Lord and God, alleluia!
