The story of Easter is the story of God's wonderful window of divine surprise.
Christ has not only spoken to us by his life but has also spoken for us by his death.
To a Christian, Easter Sunday means everything, when we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
The great gift of Easter is hope - Christian hope which makes us have that
confidence in God, in his ultimate triumph, and in his goodness and love, which nothing can shake
Basil C. Hume
We live and die; Christ died and lived!
Easter says you can put truth in a grave, but it won't stay there.
Clarence W. Hall
And he departed from our sight that we might return to our heart, and there find Him. For He departed, and behold, He is here.
The resurrection gives my life meaning and direction and the opportunity to start over no matter what my circumstances.
But from this earth, this grave, this dust,
My God shall raise me up, I trust.
Do not abandon yourselves to despair. We are the Easter people and hallelujah is our song.
Pope John Paul II
Let every man and woman count himself immortal. Let him catch the
revelation of Jesus in his resurrection. Let him say not merely, 'Christ is risen,' but 'I shall rise.
No man can follow Christ and go astray.
William H.P. Faunce
Easter spells out beauty, the rare beauty of new life.
Easter is the demonstration of God that life is essentially spiritual and timeless.
Charles M. Crowe
On Easter Day the veil between time and eternity thins to gossamer.
Let the resurrection joy lift us from loneliness and weakness and despair to strength and beauty and happiness.
Floyd W. Tomkins
American poet, philosopher, lecturer, and essayist of 19th century America.
An isolated and self-sufficient individual deeply involved in study of his social relationships, anti-slavery activity and
focus on his mature ethical thought.
His essays can be appreciated for their imaginative, paradoxical, accumulative and analogical rhetoric. This great man had a
strong influence on American poetry, his connections with the later philosophical movement of pragmatism, and his contributions
to the theory of democracy are remembered.
