The Easter season is here. The ancient church calendar calls this day “the first Sunday after Easter.” The period between now and Pentecost is called “the season of Easter.”
What is the Season of Easter?
The Season of Easter, also known as Eastertide, is the period of 50 days, spanning from Easter Sunday to Pentecost Sunday. This is an excellent time to continue to reflect upon the miracle of the resurrection and the historic establishment of the church.
While the ancient church might have designated a special season for Easter, the truth is that since Christ’s resurrection we are living in the season of Easter every day. We are all living in the miracle of life after death through Christ’s death and resurrection and God’s grace. All of our values and senses of meaning of life are shaped and given depth by the knowledge that there is resurrection: life after death.
Christ is no longer the victim of plotting religious leaders and a corrupt government, but the triumphant Messiah who overcame death and who is victor of our salvation. He has opened the doors of eternal life for those who believe.
Because of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, it is always the season of Easter on earth, every day. Hallelujah!
