Liturgical Day: The Resurrection of Our Lord; Easter Sunday (Year C)
the Easter message
Jesus Christ is ris’n today
God’s gift to the world
The disciples hear word of the resurrection, and at first consider it to be “utter nonsense.” Many in our day may have reached the same conclusion. But to us it is the Gospel Truth. A rich treasure from God . Christ is risen! Christ is risen, indeed! Alleluia! Amen!

beginning of the three days
living the Christ-life
As he washes his disciples’ feet, calls them to sacred love, and includes them in his last meal, Jesus commissions his disciples (and us!) to live with extraordinary love. This is the Christ-life.

God’s love known in Christ
mystery of the passion
forgiveness as gift
In his last hours, Jesus makes known in no uncertain terms what he has come to accomplish among us: God’s deep and radical love; God’s willingness to give even life for us; God’s intention to welcome us into love, just as we are. May we honor God with our worship and our prayers this week.

blessing each other
a sacred gift from our God
From the earliest of times, God has invited us to speak words of blessing to one another. These words are the final step in our daily devotional time. As we conclude with words of bless, we serve as God’s instruments of renewal. God’s instruments of love.
