"May this Easter be full of blessing and comfort unutterable to all whose hearts are bereaved! 'He is not here, He is risen,' is as true today of our precious dead as of Him whom Mary and the disciples mourned so hopelessly, but who broke the bonds of the grave, and flung wide the doors of the great prison house to show us that the abode of the dead is really a place of light and life and joy."
(This is from one of my favorite books, Consolation, by Mrs. Chas. E. Cowman, c. 1944.)
