Mystery of Resurrection - Jesus' victory over the world, sin and death - He fills us with the glory of His Resurrection, Peace, Satisfaction and Joy - Life in Jesus is one of peace and tranquillity.
Risen Jesus = Peace - Resurrection celebration in the Syro-Malabar Church is entitled "Peace Celebration" - Mesihites (Christians) are to be peace-makers and peace-lovers - Let us greet each other in this season saying: "Let the Risen Lord be with you" and respond "Let Resurrection, Life and Renewal be with you".
