I concelebrated at last night's Easter Vigil celebration. What I liked most was the symbol of the Paschal Candle which was lighted by the fire. The whole church was in darkness until each person received the light from the Easte candle and passed the light to others.
This is what Easter is all about. Christ is the light of the world. He has conquered death, sin and evil by his suffering, death and resurrection. We his followers have received his light and it is our mission to spread this light in the world. We are called to live in the light - to overcome the darkness of sin and evil and to live a renewed life.
This is the basis of our hope.
