One could say, at least in this year where Easter Sunday falls on April Fools Day (also my son Brian's 25th birthday) for the first time in 62 years, but will happen again 11 years from now, that Our Lord Jesus Christ pulled off the greatest April Fools joke... ever!
Mind you, when Jesus was handed over to be crucified, those that put him to death really thought that once he died he was dead... for good! "Who wouldda thunk" that on the third day Jesus would rise from the dead? He said it would happen. He fooled the non-believers. He fooled the spiteful (or as modern society calls them, "the haters").
Alleluia! Christ is risen! The Lord is risen indeed! Alleluia!
Christ, our Pasch has been sacrificed! Therefore, let us keep the feast! Alleluia!
Quod scripsi, scripsi!
