"Alleluia! Alleluia! Christ has risen and appeared to the many."
"We are an Easter people, and Alleluia is our song," St Augustine. The Christian faith hangs on the resurrection. We can be sure that Jesus really is Lord and God, that our sins really are forgiven when we turn to him, and that we really will rise from the dead ourselves when he comes again. Therefore "see that you praise God not with your lips and voices alone, but with your minds, your lives and all your actions.”
