Let Us Rejoice

Monday, April 1st, 2013

A blessed Easter!

Thank you, brother priests, for confessions heard, sermons preached, converts welcomed, liturgies prepared!

Thank you, deacons, for standing next to our priests and people as they went through this Holy Week!

Thank you, religious women and men, quietly, yet effectively there these sacred moments!

Thank you, choirs, musicians; sacristans, lectors, ushers, servers, and all who made our rituals so moving!

Thank you, catechumens, candidates, catechists, and sponsors… and welcome to the Church!

Thank you, God’s People, for once again accepting God’s invitation to renewal, grace, and mercy!

Thank you, Pope Francis, for giving us such good example in moving sermons, your first Holy Week as our Pope!

Thank you, Jewish neighbors, for keeping Passover, reminding us powerfully, of God’s ancient promises of freedom!

“He has risen as He said, alleluia, alleluia!”

“This is the day the Lord has made! Let us rejoice and be glad in it!”
