Easter Sunday of the Resurrection of the Lord

April 21, 2019

This week we celebrate Easter!!!  Jesus Christ is Risen today – yes, He is Risen indeed!  The events of Holy Week prepare us for the JOY of Easter – we believe!

Have you ever wondered how the women who went to the gravesite early in the morning and realized that the stone had been pulled away from the cave felt?  They had to be shocked, amazed, and then, perhaps, fearful – who had taken Jesus, the man who had led them to a greater understanding of God and had performed miracles among them?  Jesus gave them the example of how to treat the poor, sick, downtrodden, homeless, lonely… How do we reflect on our response to Jesus, RISEN from the dead?  Are we wondering or suspicious – how could this occur?  We must believe by FAITH – as the convict crucified next to him stated on Good Friday – “Truly, this is the Son of God.”  Our faith is nourished by our experiences of God and our belief in Jesus – ALLELUIA!  ALLELUIA!  ALLELUIA!
