Romans 6: 3-11 & Mark 16: 1-8
Easter is not just the celebration of an isolated Alleluia event, the resurrection of our Lord, Jesus Christ. Rather it marks the rising of new life for all of human kind, the dynamic shift from death by enslavement to sin, to abundant life through the obedience of, and our alignment with, Jesus’ passion and death on the cross. St. Paul explains it well, “We have been buried with him by baptism into death, so that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, so we too might walk in newness of life.” Christ Jesus, help me die to sin to live to you.
O give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his steadfast love endures forever. (Psalm 118)
Soli ad gloriam dei
