As we enter the Easter long weekend and as Christians all over the world, as well as in Fiji, commemorate the Lord Jesus Christ’s crucifixion and resurrection, we are reminded of Christ's victory over death.
The story of Easter tells us that Christ triumphed over death, and over evil and unjust collusion that sent him to be crucified.
It is a reminder of hope, light and victory both at the cross, and when the stone was rolled away.
Christ's story is eternal and we can reflect on him, where despite darkness and death, we are stronger when we are led by compassion and love.
Let us remember and reach out to our suffering countrymen, women, elders, widows, widowers and children and see in them the redemption message of Easter, and the dignified compassion of Christ.
