The most important day in the year in the Catholic or Christian Faith is Easter Sunday. The 40 days of penitence, fasting, and abstinence all lead up to the glorious occasion where our Lord Jesus Christ who after suffering and dying for our sins once again rises up from the dead to live forever, fulfilling the prophecy that one day He will rise to be with the Father.
Easter is meant to be a symbol of hope, renewal and a new life.
We need to remember that is spite of the Good Fridays in our lives, there will always be Easter Sundays.
Easter teaches us one thing: Life never ends. And Love never dies.
Easter is an affirmation of an underlying love that never ends. No matter how many sins committed, or mistakes made, or how many times we suffer from illness, injustice and persecution – Easter reminds us of hope in the midst of despair.
For every Good Friday of our lives, let us be resilient and hopeful because our Easter Sunday’s will come in due time.
