Easter is a feast with a vast scope. It encompasses all of history and beyond.
Many people may think of Easter as simply about the resurrection of Christ from the tomb (which is certainly central!) but the readings assigned to this great feast depict a much broader view.
New life that comes out of death is a basic theme of the Christian life. Through baptism, we share in Christ’s death and resurrection. But we must embrace that mystery throughout our lives, dying to sin and selfishness in order to rise to fuller life in Christ. The Eucharist sustains us on our journey through all our dying and rising in Christ.
