We have ended the season of Lent and now are celebrating the Lord’s Resurrection. Our society has their way of celebrating Easter and we have our way.
In the stores, the Easter eggs and bunnies will be on sale starting about noon Sunday. In the church, the Easter season lasts for seven weeks. In other words, Easter for us is not a one day celebration, but a way of life. Easter is a celebration of the Paschal Mystery that believes that death gives life. We can see it in nature all around us at this time of year and can see it with eyes of faith in the people all around us.
As Easter people, we believe in life and in resurrection. We respect all life and we believe that the wounds of the world can be healed. We even have a special Sacrament called “Reconciliation.” The grace of God is sufficient to heal our lives and our world if only we become Easter people and live Easter faith.
May God bless you all with joy and hope in these weeks of Easter!
