“The Power of Resurrection Defies the Power of Destruction”
Bishop Sándor Zán Fábián, Head of the Reformed Church in Transcarpathia, Western-Ukraine, in an Easter message on Pulzus FM, a Hungarian radio station in Ukraine, encouraged church members in Ukraine and Christians beyond to embrace the restoring power of resurrection in their personal lives and in the Church.
Christ is risen! With this certitude of faith, I wish a blessed Holiday to all radio listeners in Transcarpathia, Ukraine and beyond. The feast of the Resurrection brings hope, light and encouragement into our lives, once again. In the past I have often asked myself, if our parishioners are not bored with the yearly, returning cycle of church celebrations. With their central message and meaning.
And now, in 2022, when we are living in a time of war here in Ukraine, I have come to understand that this repetition also has a very important message. People’s life situations and goals might change. But the creation is the same, the sun rises at the right time and place. The position of the stars is the same as it was thousands of years ago.
