Easter — A Day of Hope

Today is a special day.

You may be asking yourself, “what actual day is it?”

Believe me, I understand if you’re no longer calendar savvy. One of the strangest parts of this new stay-at-home reality is losing track of what day it is.

Our schedules are upended. The markers we usually depend on are gone. Weekdays have blurred into weekends.

Time has stood still.

However, today (it’s Sunday, by the way) is one of the most important days in the Christian faith.

Today is Easter.

For those of us who observe Holy Week, we are a bit more attuned to religious observations and know Passover, the meaningful holiday of my Jewish friends, is ongoing this week as well.

Whatever your religious affiliation, one thing is certain for all of us: these are going to be very different holidays, unlike any others we’ve celebrated before. For today, we will not be in our churches and will not be in large gatherings with our extended families.

Instead, some of us will be at home with our closest loved ones, while some of us will be at home by ourselves. My husband and I are alone for the 1st time ever. No children, no parents, no siblings, no cousins.  We're grateful to have each other. Even though, this isn't easy. 

But the situation doesn’t matter. The importance of the day is not the manner of celebration, but rather the commemoration!

Easter is a day of great hope, a fresh beginning, a new chance. It’s about grace that was given, and grace that still exists.

Passover, while commemorating something very different, is much the same — a day of promise and hope.

More than ever, we need that feeling of hope — that confidence in a promised future.

As it is said, it is always darkest before the dawn. In both  Easter and Passover, there were sad and fearsome events before the miracles occurred.

But the miracles did occur.

I hope you’ll use today to reach out to friends and loved ones alike. We may not be able to hold their hands, but we undoubtedly can touch their hearts through Zoom, Skype, Facetime or just the plain ol’ telephone.

Remind them: we will make it through this together — as history has proven time and time again. A bright and shining new day will dawn, and we will return to whatever our “normal” was before — but hopefully, a little bit stronger and a little bit better than before!

Pass on the good news of Easter!

God Bless You All,

Joette Calabrese


Joette laughingI am a homeopath with a worldwide practice working with families and individuals via Zoom. I'm also a teacher and most importantly, a mom who raised my now-adult children depending on homeopathy over the last 31 years. I lived decades of my life with food intolerances, allergies, and chemical sensitivities until I was cured with homeopathy, so I understand pain, anxiety, and suffering. You may feel that your issues are more severe or different than anyone else’s, but I have seen it all in my practice and in my work in India. My opinion is that nothing has come close to the reproducible, safe and effective results that my clients, students and I have achieved with homeopathy.

Call today and learn how homeopathy might just be the missing piece in your health strategy.

Joette is not a physician and the relationship between Joette and her clients is not of prescriber and patient, but as educator and client. It is fully the client's choice whether or not to take advantage of the information Joette presents. Homeopathy doesn't "treat" an illness; it addresses the entire person as a matter of wholeness that is an educational process, not a medical one. Joette believes that the advice and diagnosis of a physician is often in order.

    Thank you Joette. That was very well put. “All things work together for good to them that love God…” (Romans 8:28) Somehow, even though it is hard to see right now, I know this whole thing will work for good. For one thing, I believe we will appreciate much more, the things we have taken for granted in the past. Hopefully freedom will have a much greater significance. Have a blessed day!

    Resurrexit, sicut dixit, alleluia!

    Thank you and God bless you, Joette, for all you do. A Blessed Easter Monday, Week, and Season to you and your family. Pax!

  25. Thanks Joette for sharing your perspective! I am grateful for the meaning of Easter and Passover. Thankful for the hope provided through the resurrection of Jesus Christ that gives us hope for each day! May God’s peace, presence, provision and protection abound to you and your husband in this most unusual time.

  26. LindaT says:

    Passover has many connections to the risen Savior. He was the Lamb, the blood on the door post. All that were in the house were protected and is a picture of us being resurrected from the death angel [Whosoever will…]. The journey through the Red Sea is a picture of our baptism/mikvah. Mt Sinai is to receive our instruction as we walk this world [wilderness] until we get to the Promised Land. Blessings to all.

  27. Barb says:

    Thank you, Joette. God is using you in a very positive way. We are stuck at home much like the earliest Christians as they waited in fear. But we do not fear! He is Risen Indeed!

  28. Kathy Jorgensen says:

    For those that believe in the Messiah – Passover remembers His death – Day of First Fruits is the day He rose (the first day of the week during Unleavened Bread week) – Unleavened Bread is celebrated the day after Passover for a week.

    I agree, though, He IS Risen!
