Dear parents and guardians,
Happy Easter! I hope you spent this blessed Holiday surrounded by your loved ones.
Alleluia, let us rejoice because He has risen. Jesus endured the weight of our sins so that we could be reunited with God. His suffering and sacrifice have brought hope to all of us. Jesus is a symbol of the great love that God has for us, His children. May the light of our risen Lord be a beacon to us all and give us hope and peace.
Pope Francis spoke about Jesus and how important the message of Easter is during these unprecedented times, “Amid the many hardships we are enduring, let us never forget that we have been healed by the wounds of Christ (cf. 1 Pet 2:24). In the light of the Risen Lord, our sufferings are now transfigured. Where there was death, now there is life. Where there was mourning, now there is consolation. In embracing the cross, Jesus bestowed meaning on our sufferings and now we pray that the benefits of that healing will spread throughout the world. A good, happy and serene Easter to all of you!”
Let’s be the light for all of our brothers and sisters in Christ and continue to be kind, merciful and patient with each other.
Christ is Risen: The world below lies desolate
Christ is Risen: The spirits of evil are fallen
Christ is Risen: The angels of God are rejoicing
Christ is Risen: The tombs of the dead are empty
Christ is Risen indeed from the dead, the first of the sleepers,
Glory and power are his forever and ever.
- St. Hippolytus of Rome
