Easter Quotes: The Veils of the Lenten Array are Removed and the Victory of the Cross is Revealed

I found this lovely quote / short reflection about Easter at the Cradle of Prayer facebook page:

On Easter the veils of Lenten array are removed, and the victory of the Cross is revealed. With the disciples we enter into his grave and find it empty – nothing else than the gate to his joyful resurrection. The astounding discovery of the empty tomb, confirmed by the message of angels and by the risen Lord himself, confounds the wisdom of this world. In this revelation of God’s saving wisdom, we learn the answer to Jesus’ prayer, his first word on the cross: “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do” (Luke 23:34).

The stone is rolled back, and the way lies open for us to pass over from guilt to forgiveness, and from ignorance to understanding. Let us therefore ‘set our minds on things above … where Christ sitteth at the right hand of God’.
“I am risen, and am with thee still, alleluia: thou hast laid thine hand upon me, alleluia: thy knowledge is become wonderful, alleluia, alleluia”.
