During the six weeks of Lent 2020, Bishop Donal McKeown invites us, as individuals, as families and parish faith communities of the Diocese of Derry, to use the six Sunday Gospels of Lent to look at the life of service to which God is calling all of us, as the 2020 disciples of Jesus.
Priests and parishioners of the diocese are asked to create opportunities in their parish for discussion of each Gospel reflection.
Bishop Donal's reflection for Easter Sunday with points of consideration is outlined below.

Reflection by Bishop Donal
The Easter celebrations form the heart of our Christian living. We have journeyed in Holy Week through the darkness of betrayal and abandonment towards the light of forgiveness and new life in the Resurrection of Jesus. The Resurrection, the fulfilment of God's love for us, means that Jesus walks with all of us here and now, wherever we are in our life's journey.His Holy Spirit dwells within us.
As Easter people, we pray that the blessings, the joys, the wonders, the comforts and the challenges of this holy day will renew us in spirit and encourage us to be faithful witnesses and beacons of God's love and mercy each day.
Christ is risen! Alleluia!
