Easter

Easter is the celebration of the resurrection of Jesus from the tomb on the third day after his crucifixion.

Easter is the celebration of the resurrection of Jesus from the tomb on the third day after his crucifixion. Easter is the fulfilled prophecy of the Messiah, who would be persecuted, die for our sins, and rise on the third day (Isaiah 53). Remembering the resurrection of Jesus is a way to renew daily hope that we have victory over sin. According to the New Testament, Easter is three days after the death of Jesus on the cross. 

Easter actually originated as an ancient pagan celebration of the spring equinox. In Christianity, the day was dedicated to observing the resurrection of Jesus Christ, celebrated around the time of the Jewish Passover.

Spiritual Meaning of Easter

Easter is celebrated by Christians as a joyous holiday because it represents the fulfillment of the prophecies of the Old Testament and the revelation of God's salvific plan for all of humankind. In commemorating the Resurrection of Jesus, Easter also celebrates the defeat of death and the hope of salvation.

What is Easter? 

Easter is one of the principal holidays, or feasts, of Christianity. It marks the Resurrection of Jesus three days after his death by crucifixion. For many Christian churches, Easter is the joyful end to the Lenten season of fasting and penitence.

Why do dates change on Good Friday?

Good Friday is celebrated on different dates because the date of Easter varies. Good Friday always occurs on the Friday before Easter Sunday, so if Easter Sunday moves, Good Friday also moves. Easter Sunday is usually the first Sunday following the first full moon that occurs after the Spring equinox.

How is the date of Easter decided?

The simple standard definition of Easter is that it is the first Sunday after the full moon that occurs on or after the spring equinox. If the full moon falls on a Sunday, then Easter is the next Sunday.

Why did Jesus die on the cross and rise again? The Bible tells us that Jesus died and rose again not only so that we could receive forgiveness but even more so. He died and rose again so that we might have life. It is through His death and resurrection that we receive life.

John 3:17 says, "God did not send the Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him." By sacrificing himself for us on the cross, he took the punishment for all of our sins at once.

What year was Jesus crucified? Virtually all scholars believe, for various reasons, that Jesus was crucified in the spring of either AD 30 or AD 33, with the majority opting for the former. (The evidence from astronomy narrows the possibilities to AD 27, 30, 33, or 34).

Why is Easter the most important event?

Easter is the most important holiday in the Christian Church calendar. It celebrates Jesus Christ's resurrection from the dead after he was crucified for the sins of the world―the central tenet of the Christian faith.

Easter is the greatest celebration in the Catholic church because it is the completion of the Holy week that ends with the resurrection of Jesus. Easter celebrates the beginning and foundation of Christianity. Jesus was raised from the dead, and it goes to show that He conquered sin and death.

What does the word Easter mean, Catholic?

Given the symbolism of new life and rebirth, it was only natural to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus at this time of the year. The naming of the celebration as "Easter" seems to go back to the name of a pre-Christian goddess in England, Eostre, who was celebrated at the beginning of spring.

How do you explain Easter to a child Catholic?

It reminds us that Jesus is alive and in our midst, and he welcomes us to a new life with him. Easter is thus a symbolic reminder for all Catholics that Jesus has overcome death and sin. It marks the victory of good over evil.

Can you say Happy Easter to a Catholic?

Whatever we call it, Easter is plainly the solemn feast celebrating the resurrection of Christ. It is fine to say Happy Easter.
