An Easter message to the readers of Winchester Today from The Very Revd Catherine Ogle, Dean of Winchester

‘Love’s redeeming work is done!’  Charles Wesley’s great Easter hymn of praise reminds us that Easter is all about the life of Jesus Christ overcoming death and love overcoming hate.  Putting it simply, ‘love wins’.

In days of uncertainty and great political change it’s good to remind ourselves that the traditional virtues at the heart of our national life include love for neighbour, compassion and care for the poorest and most vulnerable.  

If each one of us, whatever our beliefs and background, could take one step towards forgiveness and reconciliation, neighbourliness towards a stranger and kindness where there is need then we could all play a part in making the world a better place for everyone.

Together we can ensure that ‘love wins’.  

Happy Easter!
