Happy Easter.. The Lord has risen



The Alleluias are being sung. The fasting is over and now is the time to rejoice and be glad for the Lord has risen! The entire congregation stood in line, as they were invited for lighting of the candle.

 

It was midnight when as a young lad I held the Easter candle, and all came forward to light their own from it. Their faces illuminated by the flicker of candle light in the dark.


Wondered why we had advanced the Vigil as much. The new timings were convenient to all, as it was difficult for the present to stay awake late. Recalled the words heard on Friday.. 

 

Mathew 26:40 ‘ and he comes to the disciples and finds them asleep and said to Peter,” Could you not watch with me one hour ?”    

 

May the light of the risen lord, fill our hearts this day. Time he rises within us.

Time we came out of our graves, and be in step with the life he gave us…Alleluia!!
