He is risen indeed! Alleluia! Alleluia!

Some folks might try to tell you today that Easter is over. They are wrong. You might picture the Easter bunny with his feet up resting after doing all the work. Even Christians might be tempted to say it's over - especially after the hustle and bustle of Holy Week. Yesterday though was just the BEGINNING of Easter! Alleluia!

This same sort of thing happens at Christmas. The stores say it begins sometime in the summer and ends at the close of business on the 24th (or even the 25th if they should happen to be open that day). Why must we race? There are twelve days of Christmas and the 25th is just the beginning!

We are an Easter people. All of what we believe comes from this most holy season. Why rush to see it end? Rejoice in the wonder of this special time!

Christ is risen! Christus ist auferstanden! Cristo é risorto! Le Christ est ressuscité! Christos anesti! Christos vaskrese! 基督複活了!
