"We are Easter people, and Alleluia is our song."
The quote, attributed to St. Augustine from the 5th century, has rung through Christendom ever since. Alleluia is the church's victory cheer in praise of the risen Christ. We sing and pray and shout it again and again, joining the Church through the ages in proclaiming that the new life won by the death and resurrection of Jesus is now our own. He wipes away all fear, all tears, and our Alleluias launch that profoundly good news to the entire world!
