Today’s Important News

     We here at Liberty’s Torch are committed to bringing you the news of the most important events of our time, as swiftly and accurately as human capability allows. Accordingly, please take note of the following, which is of critical significance to everyone alive...and to quite few that aren’t:

     In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre.
     And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it.
     His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow:
     And for fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as dead men.
     And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified.
     He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.
     And go quickly, and tell his disciples that he is risen from the dead; and, behold, he goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye see him: lo, I have told you.
     And they departed quickly from the sepulchre with fear and great joy; and did run to bring his disciples word.
     And as they went to tell his disciples, behold, Jesus met them, saying, All hail. And they came and held him by the feet, and worshipped him.
     Then said Jesus unto them, Be not afraid: go tell my brethren that they go into Galilee, and there shall they see me.

     For those disinclined to accept the testimony of partisans, we have this corroborating account, which can hardly be doubted.

     Happy Easter, everyone. May the joy of His Resurrection be yours throughout this year and every year.
