“I have risen, and I am with you still, alleluia.” (Entrance Antiphon, Easter Sunday)
When all seemed lost after the events of Good Friday, Easter Sunday affirms Jesus’ words that are referred to in the Entrance Antiphon.
For all of us, these words of Jesus take on special meaning this Easter as we celebrate without all the usual festivities and family and friends who are close to us. Even though Easter is very different for us this year, Jesus remains close to us no matter what, and continuously offers us new hope and new life.
This we can celebrate!
A Blessed and Happy Easter to everyone!
Gregory J Bittman
Bishop of Nelson
