Easter Light

April 5, 2009

My Dear People,

The Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ is central to the faith life of every Christian. This is the holiest of all the liturgical weeks. Our Salvation and Redemption are sealed here. This is the beginning of our NEW life in Christ. If our hearts and minds have been purified during Lent, we are then ready to be filled with the new "Easter Light".

Holy Saturday is filled with images of LIGHT. From the entrance of the Easter Candle at the beginning of the Holy Mass, to the lighting of the whole Church at the Gloria, Light is central. The darkness of our sin has been replaced with New Life of Christ. Please take the time to attend Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Holy Saturday this year. Don't miss out on all of the graces given during the "Holy Triduum"

Entrusting you to the care of Our Lady,
Fr. Mark
