April brings us Holy Week and Easter, and we have a wide range of material on every aspect of this most special, glorious week of the year.
We like the quote from St Clement of Alexandria, who in the second century wrote:
‘Christ has turned all our sunsets into dawns!’
For, because Jesus lives, we need not fear death as the end of our lives approaches.
For Jesus said: “I am the Resurrection and the life… whosoever liveth and believers in me shall never die.” (John 1.26)
Paul explained: ‘Now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the first fruits of them that slept….’ I Corinthians 15:21
So as you put your April issue of the magazine to bed, we pray that you will know the joy of ‘Alleluia! Christ is risen! He is risen indeed! Alleluia!’
With all good wishes for a blessed and joyful Easter
