A Joyous and Blessed Easter To You!
He Has Risen As He Said! Alleluia!
The Lenten journey is now complete! The Resurrection of the Lord is our standing invitation to live the Risen Life.
We remember again the inspired words of Pope Francis—
What does it mean that Jesus is risen?
It means that the love of God is stronger than evil and death itself;
it means that the love of God can transform our lives
and let those desert places in our hearts bloom.
The love of God can do this!
Our Risen Life has to be nurtured, whether the life of the newly baptized or the renewed life of those who have passed through Lent’s refining prayer, fasting, and almsgiving.
On behalf of our Deacons, our Ministry Leaders, and our Staff, I pray Jesus’ Risen Life in abundance this Easter and beyond. May you find at St. Rita a Faith Community to inspire you and to accompany you on your faith journey.
My prayer for our St. Rita Faith Community is, of course:
May the Risen Lord strengthen our Holy Communion
and help us to grow in Faith, Hope, and Love!
