We are now in the liturgical season of Easter, leading us into Ascension Day in late May and then to the Day of Pentecost in early June.
This is a time of great Joy and hope. As we read in Peter, by God's great mercy we have been given a new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and we have recieved :
"an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you, who are being protected by the power of God through faith". (1 Peter 1:4-5)
Let us give thanks and rejoice:
CHRIST IS RISEN, ALLELUIA! HE IS RISEN INDEED. ALLELUIA!
