In between Good Friday and Easter Sunday, there’s a sign of hope. That hope is the Resurrection of Christ. Jesus’ resurrection symbolizes that there’s not only life after death, but that death has no power over him. In the Epistle to the Romans, Paul states, “We know that Christ, raised from the dead, does no more.” In Mark’s account of the Resurrection, there was a “young man” in a white robe sitting on the right side of the tomb. The white robe symbolizes new life; also a reminder of our Baptism. How wonderful would it be to see our deceased loved ones resurrect like Jesus did. All of us are called to have faith in the resurrection. Faith is a gift and power from God, inviting us to know and not only believe, but accept his invitation. As sons and daughters of Jesus Christ, we belong to him. Jesus promised to open the Gates of Paradise, so we can live forever with him in the next.
