Liturgical Guide: Easter

The hymns used during the Easter Season in the Liturgy of the Hours (Divine Office) recall the Resurrection of the Lord Jesus on Easter Sunday and then through the next 50 days ending with Pentecost, we along with the Disciples encounter the risen Christ. In the following video, Fr. James Kubicki, SJ of the Apostleship of Prayer shares some of Pope Benedict XVI's refections on the Easter Season. He draws our attention to the women who went to the tomb to anoint Jesus' body, but instead found him risen and alive. Jesus told them to not be afraid, but to go tell the Good News to the Apostles. Like them, we too should not be afraid to proclaim the risen Christ. Our faith is not born from an acceptance of a Doctrine, but from an encounter with a person - Jesus, and he is risen and remains with us!
