(The following excerpt is reprinted with permission of Archbishop Haverland from his blog Anglican Catholic Liturgy and Theology at:

The Resurrection of Jesus is the heart of the Christian proclamation.  The complex of events that Easter summarizes (the Passion and Crucifixion; the Resurrection and Ascension) cap all four of the gospels, form the main theme of Saint Paul’s letters, and are the main focus of the speeches in Acts.  Without the Resurrection Christianity is pointless or worse:  

And if Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; ye are yet in your sins…[and] they also which are fallen asleep in Christ are perished.  If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable.  (I Corinthians xiii.17-9)

Paul has it right, and modernist Christians, including the mitered agnostics, who would reduce the Resurrection to an ahistorical metaphor, have it wrong.  It is on the basis of the Resurrection that Christians come to understand Christ’s divinity and the meaning of his human life.  Therefore it is also on the basis of the Resurrection that Christians came to glimpse the Trinity.  The whole of the Christian faith rises or falls with the Easter proclamation: ‘He is risen.’ "


O God. who for our redemption didst give thine only-begotten Son to the death of the Cross, and by his glorious resurrection hast delivered us from the power of our enemy; Grant us so to die daily from sin, that we may evermore love with him in joy of his resurrection, through the same thy Son Christ our Lord. Amen.

He is risen. The Lord is risen indeed.
