Calling Easter a feast, even a great one, means seriously underplaying its importance. This day is more important than any other feast; in fact, it is more important than all events in the human history. The Greek word for Easter - Pascha - means "deliverance". What does this feast deliver us from? Sin and death. Apostle Paul writes in his letter to Timothy, "It is a faithful saying:
For if we be dead with him, we shall also live with him" (2 Tim. 2:11). The Resurrection of Christ is the essence of Christian faith and its climax. This is why the day of His Resurrection is a very special day for Christians.
We prepare for this bright day in advance by fasting, fervent prayer, and good deeds.
Please have a look at the Easter gifts from St Elisabeth Convent. Each of these gifts is made with prayer. Each of them can be your personal contribution to the cause of mercy. You can learn more about our ministry here.
