Jesus is risen, there is hope for you, you are no longer in the power of sin, of evil! Love has triumphed, mercy has been victorious! God’s mercy always triumphs! What does it mean that Jesus is risen? It means that the love of God is stronger than evil and death itself; it means that the love of God can transform our lives and let those desert places in our hearts bloom. God’s love can do this. The Gospel of Easter is very clear: we need to go back there, to see Jesus risen, and to become witnesses of his resurrection. This is not to go back in time; it is not a kind of nostalgia. It is returning to our first love, in order to receive the fire which Jesus has kindled in the world and to bring that fire to all people, to the very ends of the earth.~ Pope Francis
The power of the resurrection is clear we are redeemed through Christ, we are saved by our savior. This news is so BIG and BOLD that we need to spread it to the world so that it can be transformed. My prayer for each of you is to live the Easter message throughout the year with JOY! and to remember when times are hard that you follow a resurrected king!
