A happy and a glorious Easter will this one be to all of us who get a new vision of the risen Christ, and prostrate ourselves in humble adoration at His feet, and cry out: "Rabboni! Rabboni!" Then shall we set our hearts, lifted into a new atmosphere, on things above, and reach an actual higher life. We shall know more of what it is to live by Christ, in Christ, for Christ, and with Christ, till we reach the marvelous light around the throne in glory.

Dating from Easter, life took on a newness which made it a different kind of life not known before - life that will not be content until all the world comes alive. Despair is death, and despair faded from the minds of men who believed. Fear is death, nd fear no longer invaded the still hours. Cowardice is death, and cowardice ceased to be a part of those who knew Easter.
Easter is not a time for groping through dusty, musty tomes or tombs to disprove spontaneous generation or even to prove life eternal. It is a day to fan the ashes of dead hope, a day to banish doubts and seek the slopes where the sun is rising, to revel in the faith which transports us out of ourselves and the dead past into the vast and inviting unknown.
Do not abandon yourselves to despair. We are the Easter people and hallelujah is our song.
