Happy Easter

It's a happy road we walk to Pentecost from here. As you celebrate the Easter season, remember that we are a Resurrection people, entering in to the JOY of the Lord. Let us proclaim like the Apostle Peter:

"I saw the Lord ever before me,
with him at my right hand I shall not be disturbed.
Therefore my heart has been glad and my tongue has exulted;
my flesh, too, will dwell in hope,
because you will not abandon my soul to the nether world,
nor will you suffer your holy one to see corruption.
You have made known to me the paths of life;
you will fill me with joy in your presence."

Happy Palm Sunday

I watched the Mel Gibson movie to prepare myself for Holy Week this past Friday. And all I could think afterwards is that we are each facing our own viae dolorosae. In so many ways each day Christ is suffering in the sufferings of the world and in so many moments of each day we are being redeemed by the prayers and support of one another. And in the encounter with those moments, we discover our truest selves. We realize that we too have something to offer. Let us Rejoice then, for our God is good to us and full of mercy and total compassion~
