The Resurrection of the Lord: The Mass of Easter Day

[Excerpted from the March/April 2017 issue; by John R. Barker, OFM, a Franciscan friar of the Province of Saint John the Baptist]

Now in Easter, we celebrate the resurrection of Christ – the vindication of God’s servant and Messiah and the promise of our own resurrection and life in the world the come. Christ is victorious over death, and so are we.
