On Good Friday, Jesus was crucified, died and was buried. On Sunday Morning, Mary Magdalene and several other women went to the tomb to embalm his body. Of course, we all know what happened next! When they got there, the tomb was empty!
Easter is the celebration of Jesus’ resurrection on the third day after his crucifixion. It is one of the most important days in the Catholic calendar and is the foundation of the Christian faith.
Easter is the fulfilled prophecy of the Messiah who would be persecuted, die for our sins, and rise on the third day.
