Christ is Risen. He is risen indeed. Alleluia!
The season of Easter-or the Feast of the Resurrection-is a time of great celebration in the Church. Jesus' resurrection from the dead assures us that we too can have eternal life in the presence of God. However, it is clear that the resurrection of Jesus on the first Easter Day would not have been possible had it not been preceded by the first Good Friday. The light and joy of Easter has to be preceded by the darkness and pain of Good Friday.
