It’s Resurrection Day, the morning we celebrate the fact that the tomb was empty. Despite all the attempts of the authorities to silence Jesus and his message of overwhelming love and hope, he had broken death’s stronghold.
On Easter morning hope was reborn. As first light dawned it became clear that darkness would not have the final word and the cross – that foul instrument of torture – became a symbol of rebirth.
Here is a hymn that reminds us of all the ways the cross still stands to call the Church to action in the world for the good of others.
It is sung to the tune for Great is thy Faithfulness.
