Easter Sunday is a day of unparalleled importance for all Christians, the day our Lord Jesus is exalted. Mary of Magdala sees the stone rolled away, the disciples sees the linen cloths and yet it still took time for them to understand that Jesus conquered death and rose from the dead. Through the gift of faith and God’s love, we believe without having to see all this. St. Paul urges us not to continue living as though we do not believe, raise our thoughts ‘on things above’, as we have been promised life everlasting, let us not live in the past as sinners, but strive to remove all things earthly. Let us aspire to be like Christ, to be strong in the face of temptations, to be firm in matters of our faith, to be gentle and patient to those weaker than us, to be unselfish and generous in our service, and to be devoted in prayer. As we have been risen up with Christ our Lord, let us not waste another moment to begin our new life
