The Greatest Event In The Universe: 4th Sunday of Easter

by Father Brian J. Soliven on Sunday April 25, 2021

The resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead is the greatest event that has ever happened in the history of the universe. Nothing more amazing has or ever will happen than the empty tomb. Pope Benedict XVI captured this fundamental doctrine of the Christian religion perfectly: "The Resurrection of the Son of man was utterly different... an entirely new form of life, no longer subject to the law of dying and becoming a new dimension of human existence, an evolutionary leap, a new possibility of human existence is attained that affects everyone and opens up a future, a new kind of future, for mankind. Christ’s Resurrection is either a universal event, or it is nothing." As followers of Jesus, we are his witnesses.
