Look, listen for angels of God

"Easter should give us hope and give our lives meaning", Privott said.

In many Christians' minds, Easter is the most important celebration in their calendar as it commemorates the momentous events that occurred when Jesus Christ was crucified, buried and miraculously rose from the dead more than 2000 years ago.

Ayokunle, who noted the agony of the disciples of Jesus Christ over his death and how their sadness turned into joy on the resurrection morning, was optimistic that the future of the country would be characterised by abundance, joy and celebrations. On Sunday he plans to ask his congregation the question, "Will Easter make a difference in your life?"

Easter is primarily a time to reflect on Jesus' death, burial, and resurrection, but for many, Easter is like Christmas, it is celebrated as a combination of the secular and the sacred.

Also, the week before Easter is known as Holy Week as it includes the days of the Easter Triduum, Maundy Thursday.

"The Easter season is regarded as the highest point in the Catholic Church's liturgical season", said Father Larry Klein, the reverend at St. Anthony's Catholic Church in Harlingen. All that Jesus had told them was now coming back to them and was making sense to them. all was being fulfilled as Jesus had said. There are many people within the black community who can testify how Christianity and the hope that the message of Easter offers, has totally transformed their lives.

"As families attend Mass on Easter Sunday and come together for barbecues and Easter egg hunts, we come to realize how truly blessed we are". The resurrection of Christ was announced at the stroke of midnight at churches and special prayers and services were held to mark the occasion.

In her Easter message, the First Lady said: "My fellow Ghanaians, I will like to wish my Christian brothers and sisters a Happy Easter". And that's what Easter does - gently or powerfully - that Jesus died on the cross not because God wasn't in control, but because He was - and still is.
