Dear Borneo Heralders,

Greetings to you all. And Happy Easter !

Today is Easter Sunday, though i am not a Catholic, i am joining my friends in London (i'm on my very 1st trip to Europe which had taken me to UK, Holland, Belgium, Switzerland and also France for a study trip cum dialogue tour) to a Mass celebrating
Easter which marks the end of Lent, a 40-day period of fasting, prayer, and penance.

The last week of Lent is called Holy Week, and it contains Good Friday, commemorating the crucifixion and death of Jesus. Easter Sunday commemorates the Resurrection of the Lord. Easter is followed by a 50-day period called Eastertide or the Easter Season, ending with Pentecost Sunday.
To the Catholic Church, Easter is considered the most important feast in its calendar. In Malaysia, Christmas is more synonymous with Christianity but for Christians, it is Easter which takes precedence over Christmas.

The foundation of the Christian faith is the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. On Easter Sunday therefore, while secular society occupies itself with eggs and rabbits, the Christian church celebrates God’s great triumph over sin, death, and the devil with the ancient greeting: Alleluia! CHRIST IS RISEN ! HE is risen indeed! ALLELUIA !
Have a great Easter Sunday, Alleluia !

Be everyday on
