Today, Good Friday, is the sorrow of Christ's Passion and Death, Death upon a cross. But His ignominious death, required for the forgiveness of sin, gives way to the Resurrection and life everlasting. His sacrifice for His children is too great to ever reciprocate, except to live as a reflection of his Word and Life. Today, then, though one of sorrow, solemnity and reflection of the necessity of the Great Sacrifice, quickly gives way to a day for hope, hope ground in faith, faith in life everlasting through the redemption gained through sacrificial death of the Lord, Jesus Christ.  From The Family Foundation of Virginia, please accept our best wishes for a Blessed Easter Season.

Jesus Christ Is Risen Today

Jesus Christ is ris'n today! Sinners wipe your tears away! Jesus' death upon the cross Saveth us from endless loss.

Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia!

See the holy women come, Bearing spices to the tomb; Hear the white-clad angel's voice Bid the universe rejoice.

Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia!

Go tell all His brethren dear "He is risen, nor is here! Seek Him not among the dead; He is risen as He said!"

Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia!

Glory, Jesus be to Thee! Thine own might hath set Thee free! Come! for primal joy restored, Let us bless our Paschal Lord!
