The following is an excerpt from The New Era.
You can celebrate Jesus Christ’s Atonement and Resurrection this Easter season by learning from prophets and apostles. Here are some great quotations to get you started.
No words in Christendom mean more to me than those spoken by the angel to the weeping Mary Magdalene and the other Mary … :
“Why seek ye the living among the dead?
“He is not here, but is risen” [Luke 24:5–6].
Our Savior lived again. The most glorious, comforting, and reassuring of all events of human history had taken place—the victory over death. The pain and agony of Gethsemane and Calvary had been wiped away. The salvation of mankind had been secured. The Fall of Adam had been reclaimed.
The empty tomb that first Easter morning was the answer to Job’s question, “If a man die, shall he live again?” [Job 14:14]. To all within the sound of my voice, I declare, If a man die, he shall live again. We know, for we have the light of revealed truth.
President Thomas S. Monson, “He Is Risen!” Ensign, May 2010, 89.
As you bind up the wounds of those in need and offer the cleansing of His Atonement to those who sorrow in sin, the Lord’s power will sustain you. His arms are outstretched with yours to succor and bless the children of our Heavenly Father, including those in your family.
President Henry B. Eyring, First Counselor in the First Presidency, “Come unto Me,”Ensign, May 2013, 24.
We must never lose our sense of awe and profound gratitude for the eternal sacrifice of the Son of God.
President Dieter F. Uchtdorf, Second Counselor in the First Presidency, “The Gift of Grace,” Ensign, May 2015, 107.
