Open up the newspaper or turn on the news and very likely you will see some bad news. It is so easy for us to be caught up in the grief and tragedy of this world and forget that this is the Easter Season and we are an Easter people. The Good News may not be on the television screen, but it is a constant presence in our life if we slow down and remember it.
Jesus Christ is risen indeed. The tomb is empty. This is the Good News which we are called to preach with joy and exultation. Alleluia!
