This Easter morning we gather for a most unusual Easter celebration. Pandemic threatens to overwhelm, yet the Church insistently proclaims: Christ is risen! We still celebrate the central mystery of our faith, the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. He suffered on the cross and died for us, but now he has conquered death and fear! Filled with the spirit of Easter joy, let us proclaim the might and glory of God at this celebration!
This year millions of us are locked in our homes. We are not going out to work, not going out to play, going nowhere to socialise. It is a bit like a big blank space, a shapeless empty time between BTV (‘Before the Virus’) a few weeks ago (aka ‘normality’) and ATV (‘After the Virus’) . . .
