Jesus loved His friends. He washed their feet. Then He gave them the sacrament. He told them to remember Him. He told them to love one another.

Later, Jesus went to a garden. He prayed for all of us. He felt the pain of our sicknesses. He felt the pain of our sins.

Angry people took Jesus away. They hurt Him. He died on the cross for us. His friends put His body in a tomb.

Three days later, His friends came back. The tomb was empty! Angels told them, “He is risen.” Jesus was alive again! Because of Jesus, we will all live again after we die.

Jesus loves me. I can make Easter special by remembering Him.
