|If Easter says anything to us today, it says
this: You can put truth in a grave, but it won't stay there.
You can nail it to a cross, wrap it in winding sheets and shut
it up in a tomb, but it will rise!
Clarence W. Hall
Easter is the demonstration of God that life is essentially
spiritual and timeless.
Charles M. Crowe
All I really need is love, but a little chocolate now and then
Lucy Van Pelt
In Peanuts by Charles M. Schulz.
It is the hour to rend thy chains,
The blossom time of souls.
Katherine Lee Bates
Do not abandon yourselves to despair. We are the Easter people
and hallelujah is our song.
Pope John Paul II
And he departed from our sight that we might return to our heart,
and there find Him. For He departed, and behold, He is here.
The great gift of Easter is hope - Christian hope which makes
us have that confidence in God, in his ultimate triumph, and
in his goodness and love, which nothing can shake.
Basil C. Hume
The joyful news that He is risen does not change the contemporary
world. Still before us lie work, discipline, sacrifice. But
the fact of Easter gives us the spiritual power to do the work,
accept the discipline, and make the sacrifice.
Henry Knox Sherrill
Let every man and woman count himself immortal. Let him catch
the revelation of Jesus in his resurrection. Let him say not
merely, "Christ is risen," but "I shall rise."
Let the resurrection joy lift us from loneliness and weakness
and despair to strength and beauty and happiness.
Floyd W. Tomkins
Now let the heavens be joyful,
Let earth her song begin:
Let the round world keep triumph,
And all that is therein;
Invisible and visible,
Their notes let all things blend,
For Christ the Lord is risen
Our joy that hath no end.
Saint John of Damascus
O the Easter bells are gladly ringing,
Let the whole world join the happy lay,
Let the hills and vales break forth in singing,
Christ, the Lord of Life, is ris'n today.
On Easter Day the veil between time and eternity thins to gossamer.
The resurrection gives my life meaning and direction and the
opportunity to start over no matter what my circumstances.
The stars shall fade away, the sun himself
Grow dim with age, and Nature sink in years;
But thou shalt flourish in immortal youth,
Unhurt amid the war of elements,
The wreck of matter, and the crush of worlds.
There's nothing better than a good friend, except a good friend
This is the promise that He hath promised us, even eternal life.
Bible, 1 John
Where man sees but withered leaves,
God sees sweet flowers growing.
Chocolate causes certain endocrine glands to secrete hormones
that affect your feelings and behavior by making you happy.
Therefore, it counteracts depression, in turn reducing the stress
of depression. Your stress-free life helps you maintain a youthful
disposition, both physically and mentally. So, eat lots of chocolate!
Book of Divine Indulgences
"Christ the Lord is risen to-day,"
Sons of men and angels say.
Raise your joys and triumphs high;
Sing, ye heavens, and earth reply.
Easter so longed for is gone in a day.
Easter tells us that life is to be interpreted not simply in
terms of things but in terms of ideals.
Charles M. Crowe
Forget love - I'd rather fall in chocolate!!!
God expects from men something more than at such times, and
that it were much to be wished for the credit of their religion
as well as the satisfaction of their conscience that their Easter
devotions would in some measure come up to their Easter dress.
Bishop Robert South
He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place
where the Lord lay. And go quickly, and tell his disciples that
he is risen from the dead; and, behold, he goeth before you
into Galilee; there shall ye see him: lo, I have told you. And
they departed quickly from the sepulchre with fear and great
joy; and did run to bring his disciples word. And as they went
to tell his disciples, behold, Jesus met them, saying, All hail.
And they came and held him by the feet, and worshipped him.
Then said Jesus unto them, Be not afraid: go tell my brethren
that they go into Galilee, and there shall they see me.
Easter spells out beauty, the rare beauty of new life.
Tomb, thou shalt not hold Him longer;
Death is strong, but Life is stronger;
Stronger than the dark, the light;
Stronger than the wrong, the right...
An Easter Carol.
I am the resurrection and the life: he that believeth in me,
though he were dead, yet shall he live. And whoever liveth and
believeth in me shall never die.
I think of the garden after the rain;
And hope to my heart comes singing,
"At morn the cherry-blooms will be white,
And the Easter bells be ringing!"
Edna Dean Proctor
I'm a little hoarse tonight. I've been living in Chicago for
the past two months, and you know how it is, yelling for help
on the way home every night. Things are so tough in Chicago
that at Easter time, for bunnies the little kids use porcupines.
The resurrection asserts a truth which is by no means always
written legibly for all men on the face of nature. It tells
us that the spiritual is higher than the material; that in this
universe spirit counts for more than matter.
In the bonds of Death He lay
Who for our offence was slain;
But the Lord is risen to-day,
Christ hath brought us life again,
Wherefore let us all rejoice,
Singing loud, with cheerful voice,
For I remember it is Easter morn,
And life and love and peace are all new born.
Alice Freeman Palmer
In every grave on earth's green sward is a tiny seed of the
resurrection life of Jesus Christ, and that seed cannot perish.
It will germinate when the warm south wind of Christ's return
brings back the spring-tide to this cold sin-cursed earth of
ours; and then they that are in their graves, and we who shall
lie down in ours, will feel in our mortal bodies the power of
His resurrection, and will come forth to life immortal.
The story of Easter is the story of God's wonderful window of
divine surprise. Carl Knudsen
Awake, thou wintry earth -
Fling off thy sadness!
Fair vernal flowers, laugh forth
Your ancient gladness!
An Easter Hymn.
Ye sleeping buds, break
Open your green cerements, and wake
To fragrant blossoming for His sweet sake.
Margaret French Patton
Celestial spirit that doth roll
The heart's sepulchral stone away,
Be this our resurrection day,
The singing Easter of the soul -
O gentle Master of the Wise,
Teach us to say: "I will arise."
Richard Le Gallienne
'Twas Easter-Sunday. The full-blossomed trees
Filled all the air with fragrance and with joy.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Well pleaseth me the sweet time of Easter
That maketh the leaf and the flower come out.
Bertran de Born
The fasts are done; the Aves said;
The moon has filled her horn
And in the solemn night I watch
Before the Easter morn.
So pure, so still the starry heaven,
So hushed the brooding air,
I could hear the sweep of an angel's wings
If one should earthward fare.
Edna Dean Proctor
Our Lord has written the promise of the resurrection, not in
books alone, but in every leaf in spring-time.
Angels, roll the rock away;
Death, yield up thy mighty prey:
See, He rises from the tomb,
Glowing with immortal bloom.
Unfortunately there is nothing more inane than an Easter carol.
It is a religious perversion of the activity of Spring in our
See the land, her Easter keeping,
Rises as her Maker rose.
Seeds, so long in darkness sleeping,
Burst at last from winter snows.
Earth with heaven above rejoices.
