Easter Greetings from Fr. Blanda

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ Jesus the Risen Lord,

The words found in St. Paul’s Letter to the Corinthians reminds us that without Easter the Christian faith is simply empty. “If Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile and you are still in your sins.” (1 Corinthians 15:17).

The reason for this is that Christ’s Resurrection not only gives us hope for eternal life, but it also confirms that what Jesus said in his earthly life was true. Jesus said he would rise from the dead. If he had not, who would have taken His teachings seriously thereafter?

In our world today there are so many people who need the witness of Christians who wholeheartedly believe that Jesus is indeed risen. There is so much violence, discord and division among us in our nation and throughout the world. These realities often depress us and cause us to lose hope. Believing and proclaiming the Risen Christ brings about the very hope by which every human being can embrace in time of trouble and despair. Christ’s rising from the dead truly brings the world from darkness to light—from death to new life.

It is my prayer for each of us in our parish that we continue to live in the power of the Resurrection. By such a proclamation and a witness, we can transform our parish, our families and indeed our City to live for Jesus. We can gain enthusiasm for living. We can grow in our God given purpose of celebrating life which is such a gift from God. We can spread hope to those who need the proclamation of the Good News.

I pray also that these 50 days of this glorious season of Easter will bring many graces and blessing to each of you and your loved ones.

With the choicest of Easter blessings, I remain

Sincerely yours in Christ

Fr. Blanda, Pastor
