From the Pastor

Happy Easter, and yes, it’s still Easter. The Church celebrates the Easter season for 50 days from the Easter Sunday to Pentecost Sunday, this year May 19th. These days are celebrated as one feast day, or as one ‘great Sunday'” (General Norms of the Liturgical Calendar). We need some time for the truth of Easter to sink in. Some people struggle to take in the good news of Easter, to really believe it. They find it easier to identify with the Passion than with the Resurrection. For some it’s easier to connect with the suffering of Jesus because we have experienced suffering ourselves. Like the disciples we stand before the good news of Easter, struggling to believe. We need time to recognize that the risen Lord is still among us, saying to us what he said to his disciples, “Peace be with you.” He offers us that special peace of mind and heart which is put into our hearts by the Holy Spirit. As we receive this gift of his love, the Risen Lord sends us out as agents of forgiveness and as peacemakers, just as he sent out the first disciples. I invite all of us to use the remainder of these 50 days of the Easter Season to try and notice the presence of the Risen Christ in our lives, in the Eucharist, the Gospel, in the people around us, and in ourselves. Seeing Christ’s presence is what helps us be his witnesses.
God Bless
