Easter Reading by Bea M. ‘21
There are many Christians all over the world, both Protestant and Catholic, who celebrate Easter this coming Sunday, April 3. Greek Orthodox Easter will be celebrated on Sunday, May 2. At the heart of these celebrations is the reminder that God’s abiding love is with us always, even in our suffering, and that hate and death cannot win.
When reading the book of Psalms, chapter 36, David describes God’s relationship to the ones who seek him out. He also explains how great God’s faithfulness, righteousness and His love is.
Psalm 36:5-7, 9-10
Your steadfast love, O LORD, extends to the heavens, your faithfulness to the clouds. Your righteousness is like the mighty mountains, like the great deep; you save humans and animals alike, O LORD. How precious is your steadfast love, O God! All people may take refuge in the shadow of your wings. For with you is the fountain of life; in your light we see light. O continue your steadfast love to those who know you, and your salvation to the upright of heart!
