Being an Easter People

We are an Easter people and Alleluia is our song.--St. Augustine.

That is one of my favotire quotations of all time.  It helps me remember that Easter is not just a day, not just the Liturgical season following that day.  Easter is all time.

Christ rose.
Christ has risen.
Christ is risen.

I think the last one is the most important.  The Lord gave Himself for all men on a cross once. He rose once--it was a single moment in time, but His state of being Risen is for always.  His Resurrection is constant.  Alleluia.
