standing tall and brightly aflame,
be an abiding presence of the Easter Fire
that banishes the darkness of death.
of our death and burial with Christ,
let each Easter be a sunrise anticipation
of our own resurrection.
A Blessed and Joyous Easter Feast!
May you be inspired to live out
the fulfillment of the Easter Mystery
— the giving of the Spirit of God --
as you joyfully celebrate
the Fifty Jubilee Days of Easter.
Each time you see the dancing flame
atop the tall, white Paschal Candle,
may it enkindle within you
the fire to go forth with Pentecostal zeal,
aflame with the Spirit of Love.
A Blessed and Joyous Fifty Days of Easter!
