Hospital Easter 1.
Even though the word Easter never appears in the Bible, it is the word used in English to describe the most important Christian feast. Easter is the day on which Christians celebrate Jesus’s resurrection from the dead in a special way. It is one of the holiest days of the Church year, and the Easter season lasts fifty days until Pentecost. It is truly a time to celebrate the great joy and wonder of the Resurrection. The Sunday gospel readings focus on the appearances of Jesus that are recorded in the four Gospels and the stories of the start of the Church, from the Acts of the Apostles. The Easter season gives each of us hope and joy because death has been overcome. Throughout the Easter season we sing, “Alleluia”
