"The Lord has truly been raised and has appeared to Simon!" Lk 24:34
"The meaning of Easter can no longer be simply: 'There is a life after death.' This dualistic dichotomy between temporal and eternal life destroys the dynamic presence of the future in the present which is characteristic of the early Christian message.... Easter must mean that life has already changed, that the process of liberation from sin and death has already begun. Jesus' resurrection was not simply life after death; it was and is life that comes from death and through death. 'We know that Christ, once raised from the dead, is never to die again; he is no longer under the dominion of death' (Rom 6:9)." -S. Brown
Have a most blessed Easter!
Rejoice in His glory!
Find hope in the Resurrection!
And know that today, we are celebrating God's faithfulness---for He came down to be with humanity for a short time so that humanity could be with Him for eternity!
