Easter is a story of patience, perseverance and faith. It began when the chief priests and other leaders plotted against the Son of God leading to His arrest, mockery, trial and crucifixion.

The persecution of Christ is a microcosm of the modern travails our people go through in a society where the temple of justice is shaken by tectonic plates of political expediency, and in a government where leaders take away the rights of others to give in to the demands of the mob. The sufferings caused by such injustice by complicity, trial by publicity and conviction by popular opinion seem like dark thunderstorm clouds. But in the end, it will still be between us and our Creator, just like the time of the Son of Man when He called on His Heavenly Father.

The sacrifice of Christ is a timely reminder to value our ideals and principles to the point of risking everything for them.

Just like the white edges of every cloud, the dawn of Easter breaks the grief and loss of Black Saturday. The message of a Risen Christ gives us strength, hope and solace. This occasion therefore is a welcome opportunity for us to reaffirm our courage and thank the Almighty for His unceasing grace as we face an unknown tomorrow and uncertain future.

“In Your Resurrection, O Christ, let heaven and earth rejoice,” proclaims the Liturgy of Hours. The empty tomb on the first Easter Sunday symbolizes the beginning of an eternal life that is granted to those who believe in Christ. The powerful promise of Easter gives us the resolve to overcome hate and division and help us tread the path of peace and faith towards a society free from poverty, violence and
injustice. Together, let us offer ourselves to serve God and country.

Isang maligayang Linggo ng Pagkabuhay sa lahat ng ating mga kababayan!
