Christ is hope and comfort to the Christian communities suffering most for their faith on account of discrimination and persecution ... is close to all human situations of suffering and injustice


* * * * *


During this Holy Week let us focus our gaze on Jesus and ask for the grace to better understand the mystery of his sacrifice for our sake.



* * * * *


Jesus comes to save us; we are called to choose his way: the way of service, of giving, of forgetfulness of ourselves.




While the mystery of evil is profound, the reality of God’s Love poured out through Jesus is infinite and victorious.


* * * * *


Dear young friends, don’t be afraid to say “yes” to Jesus with all your heart, to respond generously and to follow him!

“Do not abandon yourselves to despair. We are the Easter people and hallelujah is our song.”
? Pope John Paul II


happy easter day


“Jesus's resurrection is the beginning of God's new project not to snatch people away from earth to heaven but to colonize earth with the life of heaven. That, after all, is what the Lord's Prayer is about.”
N.T. Wright, Surprised by Hope: Rethinking Heaven, the Resurrection, and the Mission of the Church

“If man had his way, the plan of redemption would be an endless and bloody conflict. In reality, salvation was bought not by Jesus' fist, but by His nail-pierced hands; not by muscle but by love; not by vengeance but by forgiveness; not by force but by sacrifice. Jesus Christ our Lord surrendered in order that He might win; He destroyed His enemies by dying for them and conquered death by allowing death to conquer Him.”
 A.W. Tozer, Preparing for Jesus' Return: Daily Live the Blessed Hope


* * * * *


“The gifts of the Master are these: freedom, life, hope, new direction, transformation, and intimacy with God. If the cross was the end of the story, we would have no hope. But the cross isn't the end. Jesus didn't escape from death; he conquered it and opened the way to heaven for all who will dare to believe. The truth of this moment, if we let it sweep over us, is stunning. It means Jesus really is who he claimed to be, we are really as lost as he said we are, and he really is the only way for us to intimately and spiritually connect with God again.”
? Steven James, Story

“And now brothers, I will ask you a terrible question, and God knows I ask it also of myself. Is the truth beyond all truths, beyond the stars, just this: that to live without him is the real death, that to die with him the only life?”
? Frederick Buechner, The Magnificent Defeat


* * * * *


“Remember Jesus of Nazareth, staggering on broken feet out of the tomb toward the Resurrection, bearing on his body the proud insignia of the defeat which is victory, the magnificent defeat of the human soul at the hands of God.”
? Frederick Buechner, The Magnificent Defeat

“God is not interested in your art but, your heart.”
? Ifeanyi Enoch Onuoha

“Easter is…
Joining in a birdsong,
Eying an early sunrise,
Smelling yellow daffodils,
Unbolting windows and doors,
Skipping through meadows,
Cuddling newborns,
Hoping, believing,
Reviving spent life,
Inhaling fresh air,
Sprinkling seeds along furrows,
Tracking in the mud.
Easter is the soul’s first taste of spring.”
? Richelle E. Goodrich, Making Wishes: Quotes, Thoughts, & a Little Poetry for Every Day of the Year

“Easter is a time when God turned the inevitability of death into the invincibility of life.”
? Craig D. Lounsbrough


* * * * *


“Christ is not alive now because he rose from the dead two thousand years ago. He rose from the dead two thousand years ago because he is alive right now.”
? Christian Wiman, My Bright Abyss: Meditation of a Modern Believer


* * * * *


“Spend every moment in "Hope" and "Love" for God for he has risen and brought us courage.”
? Phil Mitchell, A Bright New Morning: An American Story


* * * * *


“You can not have peace with just feelings. It comes only about by prayer and being on the journey. Like the wise men, find your peace this Christmas.”
? Phil Mitchell, A Bright New Morning: An American Story

To a Christian, Easter Sunday means everything, when we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ.



* * * * *


Do not abandon yourselves to despair. We are the Easter people and hallelujah is our song.
Pope John Paul II


* * * * *


Our Lord has written the promise of resurrection, not in books alone, but in every leaf in springtime.
Martin Luther


* * * * *


Easter is meant to be a symbol of hope, renewal, and new life.
Janine di Giovanni




Here is the amazing thing about Easter; the Resurrection Sunday for Christians is this, that Christ in the dying moments on the cross gives us the greatest illustration of forgiveness possible.
T. D. Jakes

See the land, her Easter keeping, Rises as her Maker rose. Seeds, so long in darkness sleeping, Burst at last from winter snows. Earth with heaven above rejoices...
Charles Kingsley
