We live in a world where the relevance of messages of faith are regularly doubted. Too often stories from the pages of the Bible seem remote to the real world in which we live, work, love and wonder.

In Christianity, the change moment is not Christ’s birth but rather His Easter rebirth. From the moment of birth, we are on a journey. The Easter message of Christ captures the essence of that journey.

It strengthens us in the knowledge that we can always create new beginnings, that in every “death” there is the potential of resurrection.

The example of Christ speaks also to the importance of service and sacrifice for the good of others. That is the Easter message remembered from Holy Thursday to Easter Sunday.

Communities are made up of individuals and like individuals they have their journey. They are born, they struggle, they succeed, they bond, they die, and they can resurrect, becoming newborn and beginning a new journey for a new generation and a new time.

Dublin is a unique city, offering a mix of investment and career opportunities. Ireland’s capital is not just the centre of the Irish economy, but the gateway to Europe and the world. It is a resilient city in one of the world’s most proven resilient economies. Currently, Ireland is the fastest growing economy in Europe, with a growth rate of 4.6 percent.

The city prides itself on its dedication to diversity, innovation and quality of life. Though small by global standards, Dublin’s size is actually one of the city’s principal advantages. As WB Yeats once said: “There are no strangers here; only friends you have yet to meet.” Dubliners make a point of welcoming visitors, investors, students and entrepreneurs as their own.
