The real, deep, true meaning of Easter April 7, 2015 St. James Website Editor Fr. Robert Barron, Easter Easter is not about Easter bunnies and pastel colors. It is about a man, Jesus of Nazareth, who rose from the dead so that we may have life and have it in abundance (John 10:10). Fr. Robert Barron reminds us that Christ’s resurrection is not a myth, but rather an event in the history of the world that changed everything.
