Reflect: “Christ came to bring joy: joy to children, joy to parents, joy to families and to friends, joy to workers and to scholars, joy to the sick and to the elderly, joy to all humanity. In a true sense, joy is the keynote of the Christian message and the recurring motif of the Gospels…
Are not those words of Jesus still true today? If we are silent about the joy that comes from knowing Jesus, the very stones of our cities will cry out! For we are an Easter people and “Alleluia” is our song. With Saint Paul I exhort you: “Rejoice in the Lord always, I say it again, rejoice” (Phil 4: 4).” –Saint John Paul II, Address in Harlem, NewYork (1979)
Happy Easter. May the joy of the resurrection fill your day, your life, and your family.
I hope your journey to Easter has been a fruitful one this Lent. Remember that Easter is perhaps the most important celebration for us as Catholics. Lent was the journey to this season. Christ is truly risen.
Alleluia! Celebrate and allow his love, peace, and mercy to transform you.
Thank you for being a part of our journey. You’re in my prayers. Please pray for me.
