My Dear Friends,

Once again we come to the Day of Resurrection and we rejoice that the Lord is risen indeed. I do hope you have enjoyed all our Holy Week services? I can assure you that it is always an extraordinary privilege for me to celebrate them with you. Easter is about joy. A joy that comes with the knowledge that, in Christ, life has hope and meaning.

There is much in the world about which to be despondent: twenty-four hour news bulletins mean that we are more aware than any previous generation of the amount of pain and suffering being experienced by our fellow human beings all over the world. However, as Christians we believe that in the midst of all this suffering we can still have hope and be filled with joy. Why? Because of the love of God. It was that love, we believe, which raised Jesus Christ from the dead and showed us that, whatever befalls us, pain and evil and death do not have to have the last word.

The resurrection of Christ enabled his demoralised disciples to become a group of people who changed the world - and they are still doing it. As St Paul puts it, 'neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation will be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus.' That is the Christian hope which gives meaning and hope to our lives! Let us show that we are an Easter people and that Alleluia is our song!

God Bless.
