On Palm Sunday there was a barren, bare and lifeless cross in the vestibule of the church. On Easter Sunday many of us brought one or two flowers each and added them to the cross which transformed it into a Resurrection Cross, bursting with life to reflect the glory of the Resurrection. Through this we were all able to give thanks to God for what happened at Easter. Death was defeated and the gates of heaven opened.
