Easter Sunday

Today, on Easter Sunday, a number of churches and their congregations in Merchantville will conduct and participate in remote or virtual services, worshiping with each other from a distance. One thing that area pastors appear to agree on is that no matter how the sermon is delivered to the faithful on this holy day, it will contain the message to not only remember, but celebrate Christ’s resurrection. This morning, in his message at the Vatican, Pope Francis focused on what he called “the contagion of hope” amid “a world already faced with epochal challenges and now oppressed by a pandemic severely testing our whole human family,” Vatican News reported. The resurrection of Jesus Christ, he said, marks “the victory of love over the root of evil.”
