A Blessed Holy Easter To All!
The Feast of the Risen Lord fills us with great joy and hope. The Resurrection was not just the restoration of Jesus to life, however great that life, but by “rising from the dead, He restored our life!” It is an event that affects every one of us. Through baptism we share in the Risen Life of Christ. We are a new people because Easter means that God has entered the world and our souls to consecrate us, to make us a holy people – a people who are sacramental because we present Christ to the world in our faith and in our life, filled with the spirit of Christ and the Christian love that expresses it in our concern for others.
Father Noon, Father James McSharry, Bishop Ustrzycki and Father Mulhall extend their prayerful and joyful greetings for a Happy and Holy Easter to the families of the Basilica of Our Lady Immaculate Parish and thank you for the witness of faith during Lent and throughout the year. May the peace of the Risen Lord fill your hearts with joy and gratitude.
