The Resurrection and faith

Easter Sunday is a celebration of Jesus Christ's resurrection from the dead.

Christ is risen is part of the Easter message. His prophecy is fulfilled.


The Resurrection of Christ on that first Easter Sunday saw the disciples at first doubting and then, when Christ appeared to them, believing. It shows us that faith is indeed a gift. In this meditation we use passages of Scripture to consider:


  • The great importance of the virtue of faith
  • How faith is a gift that many have, some have never had and others have lost
  • That we should thank God for the gift of faith
  • That we should do everything possible to strengthen our faith and help it grow, especially by praying with faith and receiving the sacraments regularly
