Christ is risen!
And when the sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene and the faithful women went to the sepulcher. And looking, they saw the stone rolled back. And entering into it, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, who said to them: “You seek Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He is risen: he is not here.”
As Jesus rose, then we know that He overcame death and sin; we know that Jesus is God, we know that we shall rise too, we know that He has gained eternal life for us and in this way, our whole life acquires meaning.
This is the night, of which it is written: And the night shall be as clear as the day; and the night is my light in my delights. The hallowing of this night puts to flight all wickedness, cleanses sins, and restores innocence to the fallen and gladness to the sorrowful. It drives forth hatred, it produces concord, and it curbs haughtiness.
Rejoice all. Our faith is not vain. Christ is risen. Alleluia, Alleluia!
Happy and blessed Easter to all our friends-readers. Let us propose, from today on, to make a great effort, with the help of God and of Our Lady, never to fall into mortal sin again. Let us ask for Final Perseverance and be faithful, at all costs, over internal and external enemies, to Christ and His true Church.
