2022 Easter

Parish Bulletin

 

In the liturgy of the Easter Vigil there is an impressionable symbolism. That is the ritual of the Paschal Candle. The church remains in the dark. The paschal candle is lighted while the priest or Deacon acclaims: “Light of Christ!” it is easy to understand. Humanity was in darkness and confusion. Christ has made himself light that we may be able to see and walk.

The Church, we are the new people of God. Through his resurrection, Christ achieved the new Pascha. Therefore, the central message of this paschal night is liberation. Let us leave oppression behind and walk towards freedom. With all the joy of one who has left the prison walls or the hospital bed, let us begin to walk in order to build a new life, a new family, a new community, and a new nation.

As Paul tells us in the epistle of this night, we died with Christ, now we have also resurrected with him. This night through the renewal of our baptismal vows and promises, God in his mercy has called us to new life. So, our life is now the life of Christ. So, let us walk with him and live with him.

As the angels said to the women in the gospel, so he is saying to us this night: There is no need to be afraid or worry…He has risen from the dead, as he said he would do.” Therefore, this is a night made by the Lord. It is a night of a new life and a new hope.
