What happened on Easter Sunday?

It was on Easter Sunday that Jesus rose from death. Jesus had told his disciples before he was arrested that he would be crucified and on the third day he would rise from the dead.

Sunday was the third day from Good Friday (Good Friday, Holy Saturday, Easter Day).

The second day after Good Friday.

      He takes men out of time
and makes them feel

Ralph Waldo Emerson

    But from this earth, this grave, this dust,
My God shall raise me up, I trust.

Walter Raleigh

Easter says you can put truth in a grave,
but it won’t stay there.

Jesus said to her:
“I am the resurrection and the life.
He who believes in me will live, even though he dies.”

John 11:25

Do not abandon yourselves to despair.
We are the Easter people
and hallelujah is our song.

Paul John Paul II

In their fright the women bowed down with their faces to the ground,
but the men said to them,
        “Why do you look for the living among the dead?”

Luke 24:5

Celebrate with us this Easter and keep looking up!
