Today we celebrate Christ’s resurrection and recognize the love and the life that he offers each of us. Hopefully we come into the Easter season not dwelling on our sins, but more aware of them. Only if we are aware of them can we be open to God’s forgiveness of them, to overcome the temptations that have led us to them in the past, and to realize the new growth, the new life, the true joy that God wishes for each of us. ‘
Whether you are here every week, or only a few times a year, if you are a long time parishioner or just in town on vacation, thank you for coming to celebrate Easter with us here at St. Joseph’s Parish. Your being here has made our celebration greater. May you experience and share the love of God with others this Easter and may the joy of Easter be with you today, and every day.
Peace and Joy,
