Today is Easter Sunday! The Lord Has Risen!

24 Apr

Easter marks the end of Lent, a forty-day period of fasting, prayer, and penance. In the Philippines, Easter morning is marked with joyous celebration, the first being the dawn Salubong, wherein large statues of Jesus and Mary are brought in procession together to meet, imagining the first reunion of Jesus and his mother Mary after Jesus’ Resurrection. This is followed by the joyous Easter Mass and then a hearty breakfast consist of nilaga when we get home.

Here in the US, Easter is celebrated in an entirely different way. A traditional egg-hunting is done in churches or at homes where families hold reunions. Eggs are painted with different colors and designs. An Easter Bunny is used in a very similar trait like Santa Claus, as they both bring gifts to children. Easter baskets may also consist of peeps marshmallows and chocolates.

As we celebrate Christ’s resurrection, I leave this Easter message to you…

May the angels protect you, may the sadness forget you,
may goodness surround you, and may God always bless you…

Happy Easter to ALL!
