Easter Quotes and Sayings

Our collection of Easter quotes and sayings provide you some ideas on material to include in cards, notes, and emails.

Easter is the most holiest of days in most Christian religions as it’s a celebration of Jesus resurrection from the dead. It is preceded by Lent, a 40 day preparation time period where many followers fast and give alms in preparation. The week leading up to Easter is referred to as Holy Week, with Good Friday, Holy Saturday and then, Easter Sunday. Easter does not fall on one set day, rather, it’s a movable feast. Traditional Easter traditions include the Easter Bunny, Easter eggs and Easter Parades.

The fasts are done; the Aves said;
The moon has filled her horn
And in the solemn night I watch
Before the Easter morn.
So pure, so still the starry heaven,
So hushed the brooding air,
I could hear the sweep of an angel’s wings
If one should earthward fare.
Edna Dean Proctor, from “Easter Morning”

Pope John Paul II

Whatever you are doing, that which makes you feel the most alive…that is where God is.
Ignatius of Loyola

The Bible tells us that God will meet all our needs. He feeds the birds of the air and clothes the grass with the splendor of lilies. How much more, then, will He care for us, who are made in His image? Our only concern is to obey the heavenly Father and leave the consequences to Him.
Charles Stanley

Soul of Christ, sanctify me. Body of Christ, save me. Blood of Christ, inebriate me. Water from the side of Christ, wash me. Passion of Christ, strengthen me. O good Jesus, hear me. Within Thy wounds hide me. Permit me not to be separated from Thee. From the wicked foe defend me. At the hour of my death call me. And bid me come to Thee. That with Thy saints I may praise Thee For ever and ever. Amen.
Ignatius of Loyola
