Divine Mercy Sunday
Divine Mercy Chaplet 1 - 2 pm in the Chapel
The Lord is Risen from the dead, Alleluia! Happy Easter!
Here we are celebrating the most important feast day of the year as Christians for the second time in our new church. The beauty of our church certainly helps to live us up to experience in a powerful way the glory of our risen Lord.
Jesus stripped himself of everything taking on our human nature and dwelt in our midst, that we might come to know him in a real personal way, that we might experience life to the fullest in communion with Him. Because of His passion, death and resurrection He brought together and united humanity, the mystical body, in union with Jesus Christ the head.
We celebrate with our family and friends the hope that our Lord Jesus, the Son of God, has given to us by fulfilling his mission. We now can share in God’s divine life because He is risen from the dead!
As Christians we are compelled to witness to this new life we experience with those around us, our families, friends and everyone God places in our path. The Easter lily flower is shaped like a trumpet symbolizing how we are to announce that Jesus is alive. As your pastor I pray that this Easter will enkindle within us a new fire expressing our love for God and one another.
May God richly bless you and your families this Easter season!
Fr. Larry Niese, Pastor
