In his message for Easter, Bishop David M. O’Connell, C.M., reflects on how we remember the words of Jesus more than 2,000 years after his death.
“In fact, for over two thousand years, the story of Jesus’ death resurrection has been remembered and retold, sung and proclaimed every day in every language by Christian believers everywhere,” Bishop O’Connell says. “’He is not here. He has been raised up just as he said (Matthew 28: 6).’ And we ‘remember his words.’” …
“The truth and the power of his word shatter the darkness of death and give rise to the bright promise of eternal life,” the Bishop later states. “That promise is offered to us. That offer is simply an invitation to believe. And that belief, that Easter faith, changes our lives forever.”
