May you all have a Happy Easter!

At Easter, we celebrate historical events that happened to real people at a real place and time - the centrepoint of time.

The Easter story doesn't change from year to year. But that's not what Easter's really about.

It commemorates the Maundy and Last Supper of Jesus Christ with the Apostles as described in the Canonical gospels.

Easter proclaims that no one is so far gone into death that Jesus can not call her / him back to life; that no one is so lost in darkness that he / she can not be drawn back into the light.

"This season allows us to reflect on Christ's struggles by helping spread His teachings and help those needing spiritual guidance in our pursuit to become better people", he added.

As we celebrate Easter, we have reason to give thanks for the wonderful gifts the Lord has so graciously and freely bestowed upon us. It takes eyes of faith to see this reality.

One day there will be no more tears, no death, no mourning or pain. To that end, the living Lord Jesus puts within us a desire to tell the Good News like the women on that first Easter morning. He said, however: "The cross is the obligatory passage, but it is not the destination; it is a passage: the destination is glory, as Easter shows us".

"We are here because someone died for us". He instructed them when they get home to stop in front the crucifix, look at Jesus and tell him: "With you, I can always hope". Therefore, Jesus continued, anyone who believes in him "will never die".
