The Easter Vigil starts with the cry “Christ our Light” and with the response “Thanks be to God”

Truly, the response that the human family can give to God for all He has done is to thank Him. That is why our worship is called thanksgiving- the Eucharist.

We need to thank God for the gift of life, health, wealth and above all, for the gift of forgiveness that He continues to bestow on our human family.

The darkness of Good Friday is gone. Grave sin and petty betrayal, blindness that leaves us unable to see our own faults, the loss of a friend, a child, a parent, the suicide bombers targeting innocent civilians, the rich protecting their wealth at the expense of the poor– all represent the gloom that we know so well we find it hard to believe in the light that conquered the darkness of Good Friday.

With the empty tomb and in the light that shines out from it, let us rediscover and deepen our faith in the Risen Lord and His Gospel. May our actions become a Eucharistic prayer, a thanksgiving.
