The Resurrection of the Lord – Easter Vigil April 8, 2023

In tonight’s reading from Saint Paul’s letter to the Romans,
we are reminded that we are alive in Christ. And it is not
merely once a year that we remember what Jesus did to
give us this new life, forgiveness and peace. Every day
good stewards remember their baptism. They remember
that they are united with Jesus in his death; that daily
they drown the old sinful nature, and that daily they
rise to their new life in Christ. Let us be mindful every
day, especially when we are troubled by life or tempted
by sin, that our lives are no longer about us, but about
Christ’s active, loving presence within us. That is our
baptism. Alleluia! He is risen!
