Notes From The Pastor’s Pen – April 21, 2019

Happy Easter,

As we celebrate the new life and joy of Easter that Christ offers through His Resurrection may we always know that God is with us. That whether it be a time of celebration or in the challenges, temptations, and even sins of tomorrow we know that He is with us, always seeking to bring us to life. So let us be open to the Easter Blessing that concludes our Mass on this Easter day:

May almighty God bless you
through today’s Easter Solemnity
and, in His compassion,
defend you from every assault of sin.
And may He, who restores you to eternal life
in the Resurrection of His Only Begotten,
endow you with the prize of immortality.
Now that the days of the Lord’s Passion have drawn to a close,
may you who celebrate the gladness of the Paschal Feast
come with Christ’s help , and exulting in spirit,
to those feasts that are celebrated in eternal joy.

Peace and Joy,
Fr. Nick
