Bishop Campbell's 2016 Easter Message

My dear brothers and sisters in the risen Christ,

There is a great joy in experiencing the reawaking of nature after winter. Although our past winter was rather mild, we still rejoice in the early spring which has come upon us with some surprise. Yet there is a greater joy that the Christian faithful experience along with the excitement of a new spring: the annual celebration of the festival of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus from the dead, promising new life to all who encounter the power of the Lord's message and His announcement of a Kingdom of truth and peace through the forgiveness of sin and the restoration or our human nature. This newness of life will stretch beyond our earthly death into eternity, banishing darkness, error, and fear. The power of the Resurrection answers the deepest longings of the human heart. It grants us meaning, dignity, and a future bright with the glory of God shining on the face of Christ. Those who proclaim the risen Lord can face the challenges of life with profound hope with a sincere and persistent joy.

You may notice, as you hear the scriptural accounts of the appearance of the risen Lord at Mass, their rather quiet character. While lacking high drama they possess extraordinary power as Jesus establishes His bodily reality in a glorified form to His disciples by calling them by name, eating with them, breathing out the Spirit upon them. The lives of the disciples are transformed. They no longer hid behind closed doors out of fear. With their hearts on fire with the words of Christ, filled with courage and joy, the disciples run from the upper room to proclaim the good news: sin and death have no more power over them.

May the risen Lord, Who changed the lives of those early disciples, change your lives as well and fill your lives with joy, hope, and lasting peace.

The Lord is risen! Alleluia!


Most Reverend Frederick F. Campbell
Bishop of Columbus
