The “empty tomb” is the foundation of our hope for a just world. Easter, then, is the celebration of hope in a world that is increasingly becoming hopeless. Hope for a better and just world is the special privilege of the poor and the marginalised. The Cross was Jesus identification with the struggles of the oppressed and the Resurrection, its vindication.
Have a hope-filled Easter!
Geevarghese Coorilos, WSCF Chairperson
