After all the preparation, prayer, rehearsal, prayer, setting up, prayer, and celebrating liturgies together (with more prayer!), we have finally arrived at Easter. The tomb is empty. Jesus is risen, and we have fifty days to celebrate this mystery at the center of our faith.
What does it mean for us that Jesus is risen, that He is alive, that death doesn't win in the end? For each of us, it means something different...and that meaning can be new every year. The invitation of the Easter season, as we celebrate and sing our Alleluias, is that we get to ponder this mystery anew and figure out what it means in our lives, right now.
We've put together a playlist of Easter Alleluias and other Easter music for your listening enjoyment this season. As you listen, think about the empty tomb. Remember that sin and death are defeated. Jesus' resurrection is our resurrection, too. Love wins. Alleluia.
