In Our Opinion: Easter's rites have ancient origins

(Continued)

Easter brings with it a message of hope, of redemption and of a new life that is eternally worthwhile. Even for those who are not religious, the holiday evokes a spirit of renewal as we look ahead toward spring’s blossoms and summer’s warmth. Especially after the wintry weather we have experienced this week, such a message is certainly universally welcomed. 

In churches all over our area and around the world, ministers, priests, pastors and other Christian clergy will in their Sunday sermons speak of Easter far more eloquently and knowledgeably than we have here. We recommend that you give them a listen.

And for those who celebrate Easter, and our Jewish friends who are observing Passover, we wish you the warmest of holiday wishes.
