My Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
Easter is the most important feast of the liturgical year. On this day we celebrate the Lord’s triumph over sin and death. We celebrate the freedom, peace and joy that Christ’s Resurrection gives us.
We equate life and death with the physical body. Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead to demonstrate that even after death Lazarus still existed. His body had worn out, but Lazarus was alive. He promises us far more than the extension of life here and now but eternal life with him.
“I will prepare a place for you so that where I am you also may be.” (John 14:3)
But eternal life begins in the here and now. We can enter into intimate union with God everyday by doing all we do for the love of God and motivated by the love of God and empowered by the love of God. We need to recall many times during the day God’s presence with us and be God’s loving presence for one another.
Be assured of my prayers for you and all those you love, and please remember me and the parish staff in your prayers. On behalf of the parish staff, I wish you a blessed and happy Easter.
Yours in Christ,
Francis W. Danella, OSFS
