Now that the commercial banalities of "Easter" have been put away, True Believers eschew the nonsensical pre-Christian pagan Spring celebration of the goddess Eostre in England.
As well as the total irrelevance of bonnets, eggs, bunnies, etc., and continue focusing on what really happened over 2,054 years ago.
The Romans ~ psychopathic experts at torture and public shaming, really, really effected their very best macabre performance for Our Lord.
Please invest 28 minutes in learning the gruesome and eye-opening details of what took place in The Garden of Gethsemane, the brutal whipping and The Crucifixion from a medical point of view:
The 7 utterances that Jesus purposely pushed up further on the gnarled prickly wood of the cross, grossly tearing open His already battered skin:
1) Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.
2) Verily, I say unto you today (Dismas), thou shalt be with me in paradise.
3) Woman (Myriam), behold thy son. (John) behold thy mother.
4) My God, My God, why have you forsaken me?
5) I thirst.
6) It is finished.
7) Father, into thy hands I commend my Spirit.
Traditionally, these seven sacred declarations are terms of 1. Forgiveness, 2. Salvation, 3. Relationship, 4. Abandonment, 5. Distress, 6. Triumph and 7. Reunion.
Whenever you feel adoration, hopelessness, gratefulness, fear, trust, or whatever is on your heart, humbly proclaim "Father, into thy hands I commend my Spirit."
What a heartwarming feeling of joy in echoing Our Lord's last words during His victory for all of us at Calvary!
