Happy Easter! He is Arisen! Resurrection of the Savior is a proclamation of freedom.
It also nurtures and sustains our hope, for, as Christ rose again, we are established in the certain hope that we too shall rise again. The members must necessarily arrive at the condition of their head. This is the conclusion which St. Paul draws from the reasoning which he uses in his Epistles to the Corinthians and Thessalonians (see 1 Cor 15:12; 1 Th 4:14). And Peter, the Prince of the Apostles, says: “Blessed be God the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! By His great mercy we have been born anew to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead” (1 Pt 1:3). Finally, the resurrection of our Lord was necessary to complete the mystery of our salvation and redemption. For Christ liberated us from the slavery of sin by His death and restored to us through his resurrection the most important privileges which we had lost by sin. Hence the Apostle Paul teaches: “Jesus was to put the death for our trespasses and raised for our justification” (Rm 4:25).
