Reflections of Faith
Read and be inspired by a reflection based on today's Gospel made by members of the Verbum Dei Family in Manila.
Easter Sunday, April 4
He is risen, He is not here!
An empty tomb is what awaits us if we were to go and see the body of our Lord. Easter reminds us that our Lord is the Lord of life! In our world today filled with death and fear, the message of Easter is more important now than it has ever been. If we are to live with Easter in our lives, we must choose to believe that the tomb is empty! We must believe that our Lord is truly alive and in our hearts we must allow our despair to give way to hope! And we are called to become messengers of this hope to others!
Happy Easter my dear brothers and sisters! Lord Jesus thank you for your precious gift of new life! Help us to be an Easter people filled with love and strength for a world that needs both!
