Dear God, open a door for my message, so that I may proclaim the mystery of Christ. I pray that I may proclaim it clearly, as I should. Colossians 4:3-4

The Season of Easter (Easteride) ~ 2016

We have celebrated Easter Sunday in commemorating the Resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ after the 40 days of Lent. In rising from the death Christ has conquered death itself (as foretold by Jesus Christ himself before his death on the cross on Good Friday) and given us new life for all who believe in Him. Each of us will pass through physical death, but not alone. He will be with us, just as the Father was with Him and we will experience indescribable joy when our souls “see” him face to face. The season of Easter begin on Easter Sunday and will last for fifty days (seven weeks of Easter) until Pentecost Sunday (the day we celebrate the gift of the Holy Spirit and the birth of the Church, Acts 2). In between this fifty days on the fortieth day of Easter season we will celebrate the Ancension of the Lord. As for 2016, we have celebrated Easter Sunday on 27 March 2016, therefore The Ascension of the Lord will fall on Thursday (always a Thursday) , 5 May 2016 and Pentecost Sunday will be on 15 May 2016. Litugical colour for the season of Easter is White, also applies on the Ascension of the Lord, and for Pentecost Sunday it will be Red. Easter is a season of joy and grace, we who are save and given New Life are called the "Easter People", and reminds us that Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour is with us. He is not dead, but alive. Therefore, we continue to reflect and ponder into the meaning of the resurrection and experience the ways it touches our daily lives to live as faithful disciples of Christ.
