Easter, although it comes around once a year
I am a practising Hindu, and after having practised the Catholic faith for approximately 9 years, I understand and appreciate the Passion of Christ. Easter, although it comes around once a year, should be a reminder to all Christians to acknowledge and appreciate the sacrifices and suffering that Jesus Christ went through for his children. The reason for his crucifixion was so that all Christians should be absolved of their sins.
“Forgive me father for I have sinned” should not be taken lightly, and although a kind and loving father forgives his children, we should not act like insolent teenagers taking advantage of the kind nature of God. Anybody that has observed Lent, Good Friday and Palm Sunday should do so with a heart filled with compassion. With a heavy heart as you relive and repeat the steps taken by Jesus Christ you should feel what He felt, crown of thorns, wooden cross upon his shoulders, bare footed across many miles and then nailed upon the very same cross for the salvation of you, his children. Many of us would not even make such sacrifices for our own parents or children, and yet He made it for you. Be grateful for his graces and appreciate what was done for you.
Behave like the ideal child and make your father proud of you. Love all, be kind to all, hurt none with your words or the sword for this is what Jesus Christ died for. Sin no more against friend or foe. Remember all the “Our Father’s” or “Hail Mary’s” that you’ve repeated over the years and make a decision this Easter to sin no more.
