Easter Period Message from the Rector of the SBU: Rev. Fr. Charles Mukuka, OFM Conv.
Easter is a period of recollection; lest we forget the past and ruin our future. It is important for all of God’s children to turn our eyes from the cross to the empty tomb. That is the hope of our faith!
To be precise the meaning of Easter! It is the beginning of a fresh day, where hope is alive! Our God is alive! He is not dead! We serve a living God! And one day we shall be with Him as we hold on to this faith. He made us sad for a little while with His death; but then, three days later, Jesus rose from the dead! He is not in the tomb. That should fill our souls with joy! That is the Easter message that you and I should remember on this Easter day.
There is hope for those who are lost; peace for those who are troubled; joy for those who mourn, for your sorrow is just for a moment. There is so much to live for, and Jesus showed the way. We should all embrace this Easter joyously as we wait patiently for he’s coming again soon.
Have a Sanctified Easter period! Let His life fill your life this Easter.
