The Easter Joy is indeed deep and unfathomable (Cf. 1 Pt 1:8). It is not something that anybody would ever want to live without.
This explains why the Church undertakes 40 days long penitential preparations in order to ensure that none of her children is denied of the EASTER JOY. However, deep as this Easter Joy may be, SIN destroys it.
Because, the devil understands the above more than a good number of Christians, he, either makes sure that they do not enter the Easter in Virtuous life or throws them into Grave SINS shortly after few days of Easter, thereby robbing them of this Long Easter Joy.
Now, faced with this DESTROYER of the Easter Joy, what is the way out? The only way out is REPENTANCE and CONFESSION through a Catholic Priest. Remember that the Priests are always available to help you regain this Easter Joy. Do not keep staying away from it.
Please, let the Easter Joy continue!
Happy Easter and remain blessed!
