Happy Easter!

Easter

“We are the children of Easter morning, we sing to celebrate our new lives.”

“Easter is very important to me, it’s a second chance. God had brought me to my knees and made me acknowledge my own nothingness, and out of that knowledge I had been reborn. I was no longer the center of my life and therefore I could see God in everything.”

After more than ten years in KSA, I finally attended an Easter Sunday Eucharistic Celebration back in the Philippines. There’s no place like home. The Parish of Mary Magdalene in Amadeo, Cavite was in fiesta atmosphere with the marching band background music inside the church. A fitting ambience for the most important celebration of the Catholic Church.

Fr. Jojo emphasized the importance of being an Easter person to the family. A renewed relationship with God, a deeper love for others especially to the needy and a burning faith amidst challenges.

There was no substitute attending the Easter mass with my wife and family. Last year, I was very sick at the hospital but now, my heart was full of thanksgiving for He gave me the opportunity to live again and to celebrate the greatest feast in Christendom.

Have a blessed Easter to everyone! Enjoy this beautiful song from Bukas Palad, the message were loud and clear, may our lives be a song of praise in the goodness and glory of God:

Children of Easter Morn

We are the children of Easter morning
We sing to celebrate our new lives
The dawn of an eternal morning
The fulfillment of our ageless desires
We sing with joy in our hearts overflowing
We sing to beckon those who dwell in the dark
We’ll keep on singing till all men celebrate
This Easter morn

We are the children of Easter morning
We sing to proclaim the Lord’s might
Now there’s meaning to our life of dying
For the Lord, our God, has conquered the night
With joy we dedicate our lives to the service
Of the God of Life whose goodness we’ve known
Until our lives be themselves our song of Easter morn

May our simple lives be a song of praise
To the goodness of the Lord
May the Lord delight in this song we sing
This song we live with joy
If we had to sing just one song
To the Lord, Creator of life
May our lives be that song resounding in praise
To the goodness and glory of God
