ONCE IN DARKNESS, NOW BATHED AND SWATHED IN LIGHT FOREVER!

Tonight, we come face to face with darkness. Our paschal triduum reaches its highest point when new fire and the light it brings shall pierce the darkness. Darkness, and the intimations of death that are associated with it shall now be vanquished. Sin, the ultimate darkness and sign of death par excellence, is now vanished for all time, for all men, for always.

This Good News is something we all cannot remain silent about. We have been redeemed. We have been bought for a price. We are all called to move from darkness into God's wonderful light.

This is Easter Good News. We are an Easter people, and "alleluia" is our song, as St. Augustine aptly puts it.
