Happy Easter! This is truly a day to rejoice and be glad. In fact, the Catechism tells us that Easter is not simply one feast among others, but the "Feast of feasts." It is the day that we look forward to all year long, in much the same way that we look forward to Heaven our whole lives long. Today we celebrate what Jesus has done for us and the ultimate destiny he won for us this day. Easter is all about Heaven!
When we truly enter into the mystery of Christ's Resurrection, hope should grow in our hearts. This hope is what turns us into witnesses. When we realize what Christ has done for us, our hearts will naturally overflow with love for others.
