The Prophets Reflect on the Resurrection

What a beautiful weekend...the weather is delightful, it's Easter and we hear from our modern-day prophets. With the arrival of spring and the out-pouring of the Spirit during General Conference, it's a good time to have our faith reborn and our commitment to Jesus Christ and his gospel renewed.

President Monson:
The empty tomb that first Easter morning was the answer to Job's question, “If a man die, shall he live again?” To all within the sound of my voice I declare: If a man die, he shall live again.

...In our hour of deepest sorrow, we can receive profound peace from the words of the angel that first Easter morning, “He is not here: for he is risen. ”

Elder Uchtdorf:
On this Easter Sunday, and every day, as we contemplate with reverence and awe how our Savior embraces us, comforts us and heals us, let us commit to become his hands, that others through us may feel his loving embrace.

Elder Scott:
He Lives! All Glory to His Name! ..This Easter resolve to make the Lord Jesus Christ the living center of your home.

Elder Cook:
While we rejoice in the supernal significance of Gethsemane and Calvary, our focus has always been in the resurrected Lord.

Elder Hallstrom:
As we commemorate this Easter morning, let us turn to the Lord, our  “Bright and Morning Star.” Turn to the Lord.

Elder Martino:
On this Easter Sunday, we remember the life of the Savior. It is he whom we desire to emulate in all our actions.
