'God did not allow death to have the last word on him. He is risen! Happy Easter.' An Easter message from Bishop Bill Wright of the Diocese of Maitland-Newcastle.
- Bishop William (Bill) Wright reflects on the meaning of Easter:
'An old friend of mine used to remark, "If God wanted us to suffer, Jesus would have gone around making people sick." Jesus was, of course, famous for going around relieving the sufferings of people, whether those were sufferings of the body, the hurts of injustice or exclusion, or the spiritual sufferings of those who felt unforgiven and unforgivable.
'His life was altogether an expression of the Creator’s love for each of his sons and daughters, and especially for the suffering and for those scorned by the human community of the time.'
