Our God is a God of the living and He wants us to be fully alive. Fr. Soney recounts the Easter story in John 20: 1 – 9 when after seeing the empty tomb, Mary Magdalene goes back to the apostles to tell them the news.
They then began realizing, slowly at first, that Jesus had indeed risen from the dead. As Fr. Soney says, Easter is the heart of our Christian life. “If Christ is not risen, then our belief is in vain.”
Father then recalls the events of Holy Week and Easter calling us to a radical change into a new person. The stories are illustrated by scenes from the movie “The Gospel of John” by Toy Gun Films, Inc.
After telling the stories of Mary Magdalene in the Garden and the disciples on the road to Emmaus, Fr. Soney reminds us again that we are called to a radical change, to become a new person. We are an Easter people! You will want to view Easter Witness on Sunday, April 21 on:
