He was born to a virgin — on a glorious night the sky filled with angels proclaiming the Good News.
Oh, the herald angels did sing! Glory to the newborn king, they declared.
Shepherds arrived, as did Wise Men from the East — bearing gems for the promised One.
It was as the oracles foretold.
The child grew into a human a great teacher a human of miracles.
He turned water into wine, gave sight to the blind, raised a dead man from the grave.
And yet the route He strolled would one day take him to the Via Dolorosa — the route of suffering. Betrayed for 30 pieces of silver.
He was beaten for our infractions, bruised for our iniquities.
Humanity’s only hope of redemption was nailed to a cross.
The Scriptures describe unimaginable agony — and yet this human from Galilee — pleaded with his Father — forgive them.
And then he died — the Lamb was sacrificed.
What happened on Friday was Good –but what happened three days later was even better.
Our Lord is risen, my friends. He is risen, indeed.
