Why is the Resurrection of our Lord so important?

Mission Lab

The Resurrection of our Lord is very important because it not only confirms the Church’s faith, but is the central mystery through which God calls us to life everlasting.

The Church celebrates the Resurrection of Jesus with great joy. Not only on Easter, but every Sunday of the year is a celebration of our Lord’s Resurrection.

This is the day when Jesus Christ broke the chains of death and rose triumphant from the grave. Faith in the Resurrection is the basis for hope in “an inheritance which is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you” (1 Peter 1:4).
