The Resurrection of the Lord (Easter Sunday) – April 16, 2017
Gospel Reading: John 20:1-9
“For they did not yet understand the Scripture that he had to rise from the dead.”
Happy Easter! Easter is the most important day of the year, because it is the day when God definitively showed who he is, he alone who has vanquished death forevermore. Early on that Sunday morning, his disciples did not yet fully understand who he was, but we have nearly two millennia of awareness now. In Catholic schools, we can celebrate the most special day of the year, giving glory to God in the process. Happy Easter!
In what ways have you conveyed to your students that Easter is the most vital day of the year?
