Today we rejoice in the glorious news that Jesus has been raised from the dead – that indeed he is no longer in the tomb. We celebrated the amazing and breathtaking announcement that Jesus has gone ahead of us to Galilee. This news of motion, this powerful movement of Jesus leaving the tomb and the accompanying promise that we will see Jesus in Galilee suggests that we too must move into new life.
During Easter, we encounter great joy in Jesus’ resurrection. To see Jesus, to really encounter the Risen Christ, we cannot sit comfortably where we are. We must go out into the world, where we are promised we will see Jesus. What does it mean for us to see Jesus in our own communities – our own Galilee?
Alleluia, Christ is Risen!
We invite you also to read the message from Bishop Noël Simard for this Easter.
