Tomorrow, Sunday, 4 April 2021 is Easter Sunday for most Americans and much of the world.
For our Orthodox Easter, Pascha, Sunday, 2 May (my late mother’s birthday) is the celebrated day for 2021 of the resurrection of our Lord, Jesus Christ, from His tomb on the third day after his crucifixion.
Resurrection Sunday is a Christian celebration of feasts, holiday and time of rejoice.
While there is much unrest in the world, much division, hate, anger, blaming, warring and frustration, we can only pray for everlasting peace. Easter is one such time to spend the day doing just that, praying for peace.
For children and perhaps secular adults, Easter or Pascha is a time to enjoy Easter-egg hunts, devour milk chocolate bunnies and savor over home-cooked or fine dining feasts of foods, spirits and conversations. For Christians it is a time to reflect how our Savior died on the cross for our sins.
It is the most Holiest time of the year and the most important day of our Earthly journey. Enjoy it, with friends, family or all by yourself with your beloved pets and companion animals, domestic or feral.
Peace to you and yours and all that surrounds you.
