On Easter Sunday

"Easter is the day when we, with Christian people everywhere, celebrate the most significant event in human history - the Resurrection from the grave, the return to life from death, of the son of God. Among all the facts of mortality, nothing is so certain as its deathly end...
 
Hope by Liz Lemon Swindle


...thanks be to God for the wonder and majesty of His eternal plan...[that] through His atoning sacrifice, [Christ] broke the bonds of death and with godly power rose triumphant from the tomb. The miracle of that resurrection morning, that first Easter Sunday, is a miracle for all mankind. It is the miracle of the power of God, whose beloved Son gave His life to atone for the sins of all, a sacrifice of love for every son and daughter of God...

...In all of history, there has been no majesty like His majesty...

Doubting Thomas by Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio (1573 -1610)

...We rejoice, therefore, as do many, and as should all mankind, when we remember the most glorious, the most comforting, the most reassuring of all events of human history - the victory over death" (Gordon B. Hinckley, LDS Church General Conference, April 1997).
