For those of you who celebrate this Holy day, I want to share special greetings.
As I mentioned previously, recently I've been reading my hardback copy of "Life of Christ" by Giuseppe Ricciotti (translated by Alba I. Zizzamia). It's one of my books I inherited from Mom that she also used to read and re-read (especially at this time of year). While I'd adore having it on my Kindle (smile), it's delightful enough to endure the annoyances of trying to lie down and read a hardback book. (grin)
Marilyn and I had a nice Easter brunch (easy food -- bacon, toaster waffles and coffee), and have been watching religious shows on TV.
Here's my special greeting for today:
Fun to make this an animation with a bit of a glittery effect. (smile)
The Pope's Easter Message included the following:
The resurrection of Christ is not the fruit of speculation or mystical experience: it is an event which, while it surpasses history, nevertheless happens at a precise moment in history and leaves an indelible mark upon it. The light which dazzled the guards keeping watch over Jesus' tomb has traversed time and space. It is a different kind of light, a divine light, that has rent asunder the darkness of death and has brought to the world the splendor of God, the splendor of Truth and Goodness.
Just as the sun's rays in springtime cause the buds on the branches of the trees to sprout and open up, so the radiance that streams forth from Christ's resurrection gives strength and meaning to every human hope, to every expectation, wish and plan. Hence the entire cosmos is rejoicing today, caught up in the springtime of humanity, which gives voice to creation's silent hymn of praise.
