Easter Greetings

The LATTE team wishes all our Latin American seminary students, their families, the congregations they serve, and our Christian brothers and sisters around the world a reflective journey to the cross and joyous victory at the empty tomb, exclaiming "Christ is risen, He is risen indeed!"

Domingo de Ramos - Palm Sunday
"The crowds that went ahead of him and those that followed shouted, “Hosanna to the Son of David!” “Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!” “Hosanna in the highest!" - Matthew 21:9

Jueves Santo - Quinta-Feira Santa - Maundy Thursday
“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another." - John 13:34

Viernes Santo - Sexta-Feira Santa - Good Friday
"Surely he took up our infirmities and carried our sorrows, yet we considered him stricken by God, smitten by him, and afflicted.  But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed. We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way; and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all." - Isaiah 53:4-6

Domingo de Pascua - Domingo da Páscoa - Easter
"But Christ has indeed been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. For since death came through a man, the resurrection of the dead comes also through a man. For as in Adam all die, so in Christ all will be made alive. But each in his own turn: Christ, the firstfruits; then, when he comes, those who belong to him." - 1 Corinthians 15:20-23
