Easter is like no other day in a year. we waited 40days of Lent, 3days of full abstinence to celebrate this day. a day far better than the fiestas* that our country celebrates; new year that we cheer and even the independence day our country remembers. this is the feast of the feasts.
in Easter we remember Jesus giving us every reason to live, to love and to serve God. for me the sunrise of the Easter day is the most special. the sunrise that brings us back to a time when many witnessed victory over death. yes, we may have not witnessed that day in the same way Mary and the apostles did but our faith tells us it happened. a feast that completes a birthday celebration is Easter. life does not end here, there is something else beyond. for those who believe, they will inherit ultimate mercy.
"Do you believe because you see me? How happy are those who believe without seeing me!"- John 20:29
