A new hope dawns
Happy Easter Everyone! He is risen. He is risen, indeed! So, hooray! The good guy wins! Among the vast array of history’s greatest heroes, only about Jesus Christ can we say, “He rose again on the third day!” Only in Christ's resurrection does love prove that it is stronger than death. In Christ and in His resurrection, a new hope dawns for all! This is the hope that if we stay united to Him through faith and grace, we will rise with Him and live with Him forever in heaven. No one else offers such a hope, because no one else has risen from the dead to be able to offer it. Only the Lord! So let’s bask in this joy of Easter, thanking God for letting us share in this victory and for giving us this hope. May we let the joy of this Easter Season change our lives.
If you are traveling today to celebrate Easter, may you reach your destination safely and enjoy this incredible day with your family and friends. Lastly, please know we have a little gift for you: Blessed Holy Water. If you did not receive a bottle, please stop by the parish office. The Parish Office will reopen on Tuesday, April 6th, at 8:30AM. God bless and stay safe!
