Stations of the Cross – 15th Station

15th Station – He is risen, Alleluia, Alleluia

We adore you O Christ and we praise you.
Because by your Holy Cross you have redeemed the world.

After the Sabbath, and towards dawn on the first day of the week, Mary of Magdala and the other Mary went to visit the sepulchre. And suddenly there was a violent earthquake, for an angel of the Lord, descending from heaven, came and rolled away the stone and sat on it. His face was like lightning, his robe white as snow. The guards were so shaken by fear of him that they were like dead men. But the angel spoke; and he said to the women, ‘There is no need for you to be afraid. I know you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here, for he has risen, as he said he would. Come and see the place where he lay, then go quickly and tell his disciples, “He has risen from the dead and now he is going ahead of you to Galilee; that is where you will see him.” Look! I have told you.’ Filled with awe and great joy the women came quickly away from the tomb and ran to tell his disciples.
St Matthew’s Gospel 28:1-8

People find it hard to believe that a man could rise from the dead. But unless we believe that you Lord, are resurrected and alive, we are dead. The Resurrection is not an appendage to our Christian Faith – it is our Christian Faith. We are Easter People, and Alleluia is our song. We believe you are Lord, Risen and Reigning in Glory. We acknowledge your continuing presence among us in our Church and the world. May our hearts burn within us as we listen your word an imbibe it. May we recognise you in the Sacraments and especially at the breaking of the Bread. May we share this Good News with all. Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia. The Lord is Risen. He is Risen indeed! Lord Jesus Christ, crucified and risen, help us to follow you faithfully.
Christos Anesti! Alithos Anesti
Lord Jesus Christ, crucified and risen, help us to follow you faithfully.

Our Father
Hail Mary
