 I am the resurrection and the life.
 Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live, and everyone who lives and believes in me shall never die.

Do you believe this?

John 11:25-26

 and Love

Everything that Jesus did for you
he did out of love.

The Bible says that God made you to love you.

The only reason you're alive is because
you were made to be loved by God. 

Rick Warren, 1954
American evangelical Christian pastor and author
Dear reader, 
My friend Tom has an expression when something does more
than only catching his interest but it touches his heart:
'It struck me', he says. 
During the days I spent at the Trappist Monastery of The Holy Spirit,
I have taken photos of this sculpture over and over again; at night, in the snow,
in daylight and from the front and from behind (as shown above).
But, only when I was preparing this message 'it struck me'
that the artist unites in this sculpture the three most important things
of Easter Sunday:
an empty cross, the resurrected Christ and the symbol of love.
I wish You and Your family a quiet Good Friday and a joyful Easter Sunday.
