The Resurrection of Our Lord was the most important and joyous of all the happenings in the history of mankind. Christ’s being raised from the dead meant that His prophetic promise would one day be fulfilled. “Wonder not at this” He said, “for the hour comes where all those that are in the grace shall hear the voice of the Son of God, and they that have done good things shall come forth unto the resurrection of life.”
In the light of Christ’s resurrection we should never despair, never be pessimists. Ours should be an optimism that persuades us tio believe and to help and to know that no matter how hopeless things may seem, we will rise from the dead, and that we have permanent Heaven waiting for us.
