Easter Sunday

NO STOPPING TO THE RESURRECTION
John 20:1-9
Alleluia!

We are just fresh from experiences of the rich liturgical symbolisms of the Paschal Triduum. There is no stopping to Jesus’ power; not even death could stop what he needs to do for us.

We can only be witnesses to this great event of our God. It was two thousand years ago, yet the Church has been proclaiming his resurrection, not only each year but always and forever. What do we announce to others?

First, that there is no stopping to Jesus in fulfilling his divine plan of salvation, the forgiveness of sins. Death is not the option to sin; rather, forgiveness is. We make sure that in everything we do, people rise from the grave and be given hope to live again.

Second, there is no stopping to Jesus’ power over life and death and heaven and earth. This second point to move to us to a firmer faith and trust in Jesus and not in our power or wealth. He is still above all.

Finally, there is no stopping to the mission entrusted to us by Jesus. Let us not forget our true mission – to proclaim Jesus’ resurrection and lead others to salvation. Politics ends only in this life. But Jesus’ reign will stay forever!

In fulfilling this mission, only then can we be regarded as childr
en of the resurrection of the Lord.
