“Why do you seek the living among the dead? He is risen.”
Easter is the commemoration of a unique event, unparalleled in history. Nothing like this has ever been heard before Christ or after Christ. Lazarus in the Gospel was raised by Christ from the dead, but he died again. Jesus Christ rose from the dead to die no more. He is risen from the world of dead, with unearthly splendour and glory. So it is a celebration of triumph of life over death, hope over despair, light over darkness, goodness over evil.
