The Resurrection of Jesus and his new life: the basis for our life as baptized Christians
This is the night of the Resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ and the Church proclaims that he who died on Calvary is now alive. Jesus Christ is risen from the dead. The Easter proclamation is a message of victory and peace. Through the sacrament of baptism we share in Christ's Resurrection. The great challenge of Baptism is to live for God. The Eucharist gives us the power to do so. Today the Risen Jesus goes before us, calling us to manifest our faith that he is truly risen and forever alive.
