My dear brothers & sisters in Christ,
For some Easter is a welcome holiday, with an opportunity to enjoy Hot Cross Buns on Good Friday and chocolate eggs, symbols of new life, on Easter Sunday.
These are good things. We all enjoy a break from work or study, and special food for special occasions is always welcome. Behind these customs, however, are the extraordinary events that define what we mean by love
At Easter, we remember and call to mind three things:
1. The Last Supper in which Jesus Christ gave his follower Holy Communion on Holy Thursday.
2. The death of Jesus on the cross on Good Friday.
3. Jesus risen from the dead to new life on Easter Sunday.
May God continue to bless you all.
