Easter Sunday - He is Risen!! He has truly Risen!!

Today is the day that makes our faith real! If Jesus did not rise from the dead, our faith would be in vain. Here are some words from Pope Benedict XVI from today's Magnificat:

"Faith in the Resurrection of Jesus says that there is a future for every human being; the cry for unending life which is a part of the person is indeed answered. Through Jesus we do know 'the room where exiled love lays down its victory.' He himself is this place, and he calls us to be with him and in dependence on him. He calls us to keep this place open within the world so that he, the exiled love, may reappear over and over in the world... God exists: that is the real message of Easter. Anyone who even begins to grasp what this means also knows what it means to be redeemed."

Have a wonderful Joy filled Easter! And remember that Easter is just beginning. It will end on Pentecost Sunday when the Holy Spirit comes! God bless!!
