Bishop Anthony's 2011 Easter Video Message


'The power to conquer sin, suffering and death'

An Easter Message from the Bishop of Parramatta, Most Rev Anthony Fisher OP

"Jesus dies upon the cross in solidarity with all suffering humanity. God goes down into tomb with all those we’ve loved and lost. Jesus goes to the land of the Dead, to speak the compassion of God even there. And He shows them and us the way out. We move with him from the numbness, anger and disgust, to better feelings such as pity and hope. We come to trust creation again, to be reconciled with our enemies, to believe once more."
