Easter Sunday

"He is not here...."  But He said He would be with us for all time? "We know that Jesus is present in the Eucharist...we can't explain this profound mystery, but we believe.  His presence also penetrates and pervades every single atom.  We are never alone.  God permeates all of creation."  So "He is not here.  He has been raised."  "Alleluia!  Let us rejoice and be glad today and forever."  Jesus is with us for all time!  Uplifting Thoughts for Every Day, Fr. John Catoir

An Easter Blessing

May the celebration of resurrected life bring new hope to your being.
May the victory over earthly death turn your eyes to the promises of heaven.
May the empty tomb help you to leave your sorrows at the foot of the cross.
So that God's hope, promises and forgiveness reign in your life forever.
