Easter Sunday
Jesus Christ is Risen Today
Jesus Christ is risen today! Alleluia! Easter Sunday, a day of unparalleled importance for all Christians, the day our Lord Jesus is exalted. Jesus was somehow visibly different after the resurrection, as it was difficult for His disciples to recognize Him. Until today, it is through the gift of faith and God’s love that we too could recognize Him. The disciples were transformed and completely changed, they had fled and hid in fear when Jesus was arrested, then, having finally understood about his death and resurrection, they came back as people filled with courage, joy and fervour. We too are called to be people transformed by the Lord. We are called to be Easter people of joy and courage to leave our comfort zones and give ourselves generously to the service of others and God. St. Paul urges us to live as one who believes, to raise our thoughts towards “things above”. As we have been promised life everlasting, let us not continuously live as sinners, but as one forgiven and transformed and boldly proclaim the risen Lord to the world.
