Message for this week.
As we gather for worship in celebration of the resurrection of our Lord, the acclamation Alleluia, which means, "Praise the Lord" is never far from our lips. In the reading from the prophet we hear God's promise of the new creation, where death and weeping and distress will be no more and we respond, "Alleluia!" St. Paul teaches that Christ':s resurrection is but the first fruits of His victory over death. Because He is risen, all who trust in Him will likewise rise. Alleluia! The angels asked the women, "Why do you seek the living among the dead? . . . . Remember how he told you . . . on the third day [He must] rise. . . . He is not here, but has risen" (Lk. 24:5-7). Alleluia! Christ is risen, and we too will rise! Alleluia!
