Easter message 2022

Easter is that time of year that we all look forward to so much. As well as the longer days and the expected better weather it’s a time that fills us with hope and optimism. It’s a time for being happy and full of Easter joy. Apart from the Easter eggs there are lots of things that help to keep us happy.

This particular year, 2022, is a time of special rejoicing. It’s the first time in three years that we can be back in our churches again to celebrate this most important feast. Sure, we still need to be careful and cautious but, thanks to vaccines and self-responsibility and the care that we got from medical professionals and others, our gatherings together, while not quite the normal of before, are definitely heading in that direction.

The Christian faith is always expressed in community. It is when we gather together that we tell the great story of salvation. We hear and we listen to God’s nurturing and care for his people. We listen to the great story of the Exodus, we rejoice in the hope of the Prophets and we tell ourselves again the Easter story of Jesus’s death and especially his Resurrection.

We had look forward to being back again sharing our faith with one another and be happy in our hope. We felt that when the Covid crisis had passed the world would be a better place a place where we could live our lives in fulfilment and peace.
We could not have imagined the horrors of war that were waiting in the wings to play out before us. Emerging from one crisis we found ourselves confronting another. The sadness of death and displacement were unfolding before our eyes. It seemed like Good Friday had come again for the whole world and especially for those in Ukraine, millions of whom were asked to walk through the valley of darkness.

We share with Pope Francs in condemning the “senseless massacre” in the besieged Ukraine. The Christian message is one of peace and will always be so. This Easter it seems we need to pray all the more earnestly that peace may descend upon our world so that we can all live in harmony together.
