The custom of giving eggs began as a pagan practice, but was adopted by early Christians. Easter eggs are used as symbols of new life, the arrival of spring and the resurrection of Jesus. Plus, kids love dyeing them.
Michelangelo's Pieta, which depicts the body of Jesus on his mother's lap after the Crucifixion, is poignant, equally human and divine. Easter remembers this, but more importantly, celebrates the resurrection of Jesus -- a miracle in the Christian faith -- showing how it is possible for good to conquer evil and life to overcome death.
Happy Easter Everyone! Enjoy your Easter egg hunt, basket of treats and family dinner. And take a moment to remember ...
Life is good.
