During the Easter Vigil on Saturday evening I found myself thinking about the sense of awe and wonder experienced by those women and men at the empty tomb that morning. Fear and sadness was replaced with joy as they witnessed first hand the reality of the Resurrection. Two thousand years later, the truth of the Resurrection of Our Lord stills bring us joy and the promise of eternal life. The Resurrection of Our Lord gives hope of better days ahead. The hope of salvation that Easter brings is sorely needed in these troubled times. While it may seem as if the world around us is failing into chaos, as we reflect on the events of Easter we are reminded that the biggest battle has already been fought and won on our behalf.
Hope you have a joy-filled and blessed Easter!
