Our Lord has risen!
From the Desk of Father David
Dear Parishioners and Friends in Christ,
Praise the Lord, all you nations!
Give glory, all you peoples!
The Lord’s Love for us is strong;
The Lord is faithful forever. Hallelujah! Psalm 117 NAB
When You look at the world through the Resurrection of Jesus Christ you see new horizons and new possibilities. Everything is changed because we know our God has conquered all of evil and redeemed us. Look throughout history and see people doing the impossible, medicine and education becomes available for everyone, the physically and spiritually poor are helped, and the world is bathed in hope. And most importantly Death is transformed from the grim reaper, the final end of our lives, into a healing doorway into the fullness of life. All this is happening because our God’s love is so strong, He brings goodness out of evil and wants everyone of us to have life abundantly.
Great advances have been made in building the Kingdom of God in our world over the past two thousand years. Together, guided by the Holy Spirit, may we continue the marvelous work of our Lord Jesus Christ with a grateful heart; knowing that the work we do will lessen suffering and pain and there will be more peace, forgiveness in our world.
Especially during this Holy Season of Easter, may the new life of Christ be showered upon you, your family, friends and our larger community.
Wishing you a blessed and happy Easter!
In Easter joy,
Fr. David Bellittiere
