The Resurrection of Jesus is the very foundation of our faith and it is like a lighthouse, beaming forth the light of hope.
Hope is one of those three pivotal virtues we live by - Faith, Hope and Love. Faith is what enables us to believe in our God, love is the bond which keeps us close to God, but it is hope that helps us to keep believing and keep loving, when darkness descends or the cross becomes too heavy.
The Resurrection is this Beacon of hope that Jesus has overcome sin and death. It is a sign that our Saviour Jesus Christ continues to journey with us and is our companion always. “And remember that I am always with you until the end of time.” (Mt 28:20)
May you - in your families, in your religious communities, in parishes and throughout our archdiocese, find joy and peace this Easter.
Thank you for being people of hope who can say "Jesus is Lord - He is Risen, Alleluia!"
