April 18 : As the Lent period draws to a close, the world move in prayers and hopes for sacred days like Good Friday and then finally closing in with Easter. Often, we all fast religiously through the Lent period, take part in the Good Friday Mass and finally celebrate with pomp and good food on Easter.
Easter holds a fundamental dimension of Christianity and it is all about the resurrection of Lord Jesus Christ. The dates may change each year, but essentially the History and Significance of Easter is something you must know about.
This year, the Pope took his time to make Christians over the world understand the essence of the Holy Week and how we need to live better. This Good Friday 2019 will be the seventh season with Pope Francis in power to guide his people.
“Christ died because He loves each one of us: young and old, saints and sinners, people of His time and people of our time. #HolyWeek “
“Christ, out of love, sacrificed himself completely in order to save you. His outstretched arms on the cross are the most telling sign that he is a friend who is willing to stop at nothing. #HolyWeek”
“By his self-abasement, Jesus wanted to open up to us the path of faith and to precede us on that path. #PalmSunday #HolyWeek “
“Fasting also means changing our attitude towards other people and towards all creatures: from the temptation to “devour” everything to satisfy our greed, to the ability to suffer for love. #Lent “
His words are heavenly indeed, and we just need to listen to his golden words for Easter also. But sadly, the world fails to do so.
