An Easter message from Bishop Rose

Easter greetings!


My sisters and brothers,

Alleluia, Christ is risen!  He is risen indeed. Alleluia!
 
The songwriter says the strife is over, the battle done, the victory of life is won. The song of triumph has begun: hallelujah!  The powers of death have done their worst but Christ has triumphed over death. 

Covid-19 has also done its worst but having the vaccine has given us a way out so that, going forward, we can be together again. So we sing "Alleluia!" this Easter with a real depth of joy.

Sisters and brothers, let us remember that we serve a risen saviour who is present in our world today - and we know this because he lives within our hearts. So Alleluia, Christ is risen!  He is risen indeed. Alleluia!

Wishing you - and all those you love - the joy and peace of Christ this Easter, 





The Rt Revd Rose Hudson-Wilkin
Bishop of Dover and Bishop in Canterbury
