No sting of death! No victory accept in Christ Jesus.
O the great joy of this Easter Day, when Christ rose up from the grave. We too, hear his voice and we rise with him. Just as he has delivered us into his passion by the waters of Baptism, he delivers us into his Resurrection.
We run as the disciples did to the tomb and realize that it is empty! We have seen him and exclaim, “ALLELUIA! My Lord and my God.” Because of Him we are no long captives to our sins. Rather, he has conquered. Even in hell he says, “I AM.”
Rejoice! Rejoice with the whole Church today for Christ the LORD is Risen just as he said. Let us go to meet Him! Eucharist!
