Niagara Gazette — We need to be more like the faithful Catholics and to celebrate both life and the conquering of death.
It is Good Friday; and for us so-called Christians, our minds will be at the foot of a cross that was 5800 miles and 2000 years away. In most churches, those sparse congregants will observe a less than elaborate and ceremonial celebration of the death of Christ. But come Sunday morning, Easter, those on the packed pews will celebrate the resurrection of Christ in a celebration of life; and it will renew many of their religious lives.
Such celebrations should serve as an example to us all in our responsibility to resurrect our city, too. We must take every opportunity to celebrate life – be it in a new immigrant, a new imagination, a new building, a new business and especially a new baby.
This may be our last best chance to do so. Let's get it done.
Happy Easter.Contact Ken Hamilton at email@example.com.
