Easter is a celebration of Christ's Resurrection from the dead. It is celebrated on Sunday and marks the end of Holy Week, the end of Lent, the last day of the Easter Triduum (Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter Sunday). Since Easter represents the fulfillment of God's promises to mankind, it is the most important holiday on the Christian calendar.
As we know from the Gospels, Jesus Christ rose from the dead on the third day following his crucifixion, which would be Sunday. His Resurrection marks the trumph of good over Satan, sin and eternal death. It is the singular event which proves that those who trust in God and accept Christ will be raised from the dead. In the same Gospels, the precise details of the Easter narrative vary slightly, but none of thes variances are critical to the main story of Easter; they all match. Above all, they agree that the tomb of Christ was indeed empty, which is the most essential fact.
Most Catholics attend Easter Vigil at sunset, although the services can be lengthy because many sacraments are conferred upon Catechumens and Candidates, such as Baptism, Confirmation of the adults and First Holy Communion, during the Mass. This year our RCIA class is the greatest-27 adult and young parishioners have been prepared for Easter Sacraments.
I think it is God's reward for our hard work during our Parish Mission in November 2016 by the St Patrick Community as well as the fruits of many prayers of living holy souls of this parish. In 2016 the Holy Father Pope Francis said to our young people in Krakow during World Youth Day: "have your boots laced" and "do not be couch potatoes". May we keep amd follow his words with enthusiasm and joy.
With Happy and Joyful Allelulia to all parishioner and visitors.
