Bishop Campbell's 2014 Easter Message

Dear friends in the risen Lord,

The ancient sequence sung at the Easter Mass proclaims: "Christ indeed from death has risen, our new life obtaining.  Have mercy, victor King, ever reigning." Good news indeed!  Jesus Christ has endured all that could threaten the dignity of human life, crushing the power of sin and overthrowing the tragic pride of death.  The new and everlasting life that Christ has won through the Resurrection, He now offers to all who would be His disciples.


Hearing the offer of the Resurrection is always the cause of Easter joy.  Such joy is especially experienced after a long and hard winter, when all of nature seems to awaken to the promise of new life. This Easter joy is not simply a matter of one day or for a season, but is intended to be the foundation of all Christian existence.

To make the joy of Easter the common thread of our daily lives requires the conversion of our ways of thinking and acting. Followers of the risen Lord live differently from the world around us.  We respond to Christ's offer by living the virtues of faith, hope, and love, made possible by becoming, not merely hearers of the Word but doers.  We assume the name of Christ and become disciples, grateful for the gift of life paid for at so great a price.  We understand that the Resurrection without the Cross would be merely another form of paganism.  With gratitude and joy we are blessed to acclaim that Jesus Christ, victor over death, is Lord.

May the Lord Jesus rise in your hearts and bring you to everlasting life.

Most Reverend Frederick F. Campbell
Bishop of Columbus
