He is Risen! Thanks be to God!


 Christians are an Easter people.  Despite the focus on the birth of Jesus, the crux of our faith is literally the Cross.  Without His death and Resurrection, what do we have? Nothing. 

One year, I attended a Good Friday service with a beautifully short yet poignant homily.  We can look at history, and see that yes, there was a prisoner released in exchange for another man.  That man dragged a cross through town, up a steep hill, and was hanged to death on it.  It's history.  Faith is we believe that man was our Savior, Jesus Christ. 

Faith is what tells us that the man who physically died gave his life for all of us.  He rose on the third day, and showed himself to his first followers, and like St. Paul, we believe because we have been told. 

We have been told He is no longer in the grave. He has risen from the dead, and is with the Father, where we all shall be.  Thanks be to God!  Alleluia!
