Dear brothers and sisters in Christ.
It is now early in the morning of Monday in Holy Week. Holy week is the most holy period of time within the Church Year. In it, we see how Christ was treated by the people. We see on Easter His rising from the dead. Below is a brief look into three days in Holy Week.
On this night at the Last Supper Christ gave His Church the Holy Eucharistic. The communion of His Body and Blood. This is to support us in our daily lives and gives us the knowledge that in this Sacrament Christ is with us and His Church till the end of days.
The day Christ died for our sins. The day that our debt to God the Father was paid in full. If we accept Christ as our Lord and Savior and repent of our sins they are forgiven. There is one other important thing that we must remember and hold fast. We say that Christ died on the cross but what does that mean? We know that Christ is both God and man, He is fully divine and fully human. We also know that God, the divine cannot be killed but the human can. The humanity in Christ died as you and I will someday die. Easter does not work unless we accept this.
This is the feast when we celebrate the Resurrection of Christ, His rising from the dead. As mentioned earlier Christ is divine and human but only the human could be killed. This being true then only His humanity could be brought back to life. This is the great message of Easter life does not come to an end forever.
As Christ died we will all die. As Christ was raised from the dead we will all be raised at the end of time. God loves us and wants us to be with Him forever, He will not let us die forever, PRAISE GOD.
Yours in Christ
