An Easter Prayer

    The veil of darkness
    Transformed to the brightest light.
    The most dreadful end
    Became the most beautiful
    The depths of despair
    Fade to reveal hope everlasting.
    The curse of death
    Defeated by eternal life.
    Thank you Lord,
    for the wonder of Easter
    The great gift of Easter
    is hope – Christian hope
    which makes us have that
    confidence in God, in his
    ultimate triumph, and in his
    goodness and love, which
    nothing can shake.
    Basil C Hume, (1923 – 1999)
    Cardinal Archbishop of Westminister
